IT WILL GET A LITTLE MESSY!!!


Step 3:
Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients Together:

Use a fork to start or it WILL stick to you
Once it looks like clumps of wet sand, you can use your hands to crush and crumble it together
Once it looks like clumps of wet sand, you can use your hands to crush and crumble it together
If it is too dry, the sand will not stick together (spritz with water until it stick together under pressure)
If it is too wet it will stick to your hands (add more corn starch)
Here is how it should look
