DIY Kinetic Sand Slime Recipe for Kids
This DIY Kinetic sand recipe is very fun!
It’s a mix between DIY kinetic sand and slime.
What a cool mixture!
This Kinetic Sand DIY sand slime recipe is a borax free slime and can be used in a fun small world play like we did for an ocean theme this summer.
My girls enjoyed adding in their ocean themed toys into this DIY ocean themed sensory bin!
This is a great small world play whether you are trying this in a school setting or if you are just right at home. 🙂
I will be sharing below how I made this slime and all I used along with some fun play ideas you can try with your preschoolers and for kids.

1 cup Craft sand (I used colored craft sand, but regular colored craft sand will do)
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp dish soap (I used dawn dish soap)
Contact Lens Solution (start with 2 tbs and work your way up if need be; I added a squirt here and there until it wasnt sticky any longer.)
How to make coloured kinetic sand
Note: If you are using regular color craft sand, you can add a squirt or two of food coloring to color your sand.
Also, if it’s too sticky keep adding contact lens solution as this is what makes it all come together.
The mix between contact solution and cornstarch is needed if you have added an over amount of contact solution.

And, if you’d like to make it taste safe, just add a bit of flour in replacement of the craft sand.
Make sure to preheat your oven and add it in for a couple of minutes to remove any bacteria in the flour.
Important: Let it cool off on the table before it is used for play.
