Servings: 1 batch


  • cups Play Sand (You can buy it at your local craft store or hardware store.)
  • cups Corn Starch (Potato starch also works.)
  • ½ cup Cooking Oil (Baby oil works, too.)


  • Grab a large mixing bowl or dish and pour your sand in it.
  • Add the corn starch and stir, stir, stir. Be sure to combine thoroughly.
  • Slowly pour the oil in and mix evenly. Easy does it! Add a little bit at a time. Continue to stir until there are no longer any wet (or dry) spots.
  • Now you're ready to play! Have fun.


When you're finished playing, store your sand in an airtight container with a lid. It should last for several months!
