Once you have your beach slime and your sand slime, make one long tail of sand slime and one long tail of ocean slime.
twist them together to make a spiral that is half-brown, half-blue. You can also do like we did and make a little sand island surrounded by ocean slime! The texture of the sand slime makes it feel just like the wet sand at the beach, and the kids will love sinking the little animals and creatures right into the sand slime to make prints.
Twist the two slimes together for a beachy, stretchy look. The best part about using these specific slime recipes is that the ocean slime has a slightly different texture than the sand slime. This means that unlike other slime recipes, these two won’t meld together right away. The separation remains, and you have two distinct layers in your slime.
