DIY Beach Sand Slime

For our first foray into homemade slime we made BEACH SAND SLIME and let me just tell you, it lived up to the expectations! Piper played with it for a solid hour two days in a row! It was really fun and simple to make and a great sensory tool to add to your collection! It’s so pretty when it sparkles, but beware if you add glitter it does tend to flake off on the play surface (and hands).

Clear Glue
Contact Lens Solution (Be sure it contains boric acid & sodium borate)
Baking Soda
Play Sand

Mix together 6oz clear glue, 1/2tbs baking soda and 1tbs contact solution. Add in 1/4 – 1/2 cup play sand and stir until combined. Knead until it’s no longer sticky. Add glitter if you’d like but be warned that it does tend to come off the slime a bit as you play and get on hands and surfaces (still worth it in my opinion). Store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
