Activity

Paper Pinwheel

Materials

  • Clear Glue (two 5 oz. bottles)
  • Liquid Starch
  • Play Sand (or rinsed beach sand)

Directions
  1. Collect some beach sand and sift it to remove pebbles and debris. Rinse as needed.
  2. Poured all the glue (10 oz.) into a bowl, stir in some sand, and 1/2 cup of the liquid starch, 1/4 cup at a time. Stir until well mixed, and then knead with your hands. If your slime is too sticky, add more starch a little at a time and mix well.
  3. The finished slime should be stretchy and oozy, but should not stick to hands. If it does, add more starch.
  4. Store the slime in a ziplock bag. It should keep for several weeks! Knead again as needed.
