Fun With Kenetic Sand

Have you ever checked out Kinetic Sand? I tried it for the first time the other day and it’s great fun! You can buy small containers fairly cheaply and the fun lasts for hours!

The one I picked up had 4 different colors inside. Pretty cool, right?

I taped a piece of parchment paper to our table before I started. I was able to separate the colors for the most part with a little bit of the colors mixing together.

This sand feels pretty cool and “smooshie”. It holds together much better than regular sand and it doesn’t stick to your hands. You can flatten it.

You can use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes.

You can roll it into little balls…

Or roll it into larger balls.

You can make snakes…

I used a toothpick to give the snakes eyes.

You can make flowers.

Or pretend to make peanut butter cookies by rolling little balls…

Using a fork to press a mark into the top…

And then crisscross a mark in the other direction.

If you want to hold the sand in your hand, it will crumble up nicely like regular sand does.

You can pack the kinetic sand into a cookie cutter…

And gently push it out of the cookie cutter and you’ll have a 3-D shape.

I’m guessing there are a lot of other things you can think of to do with kinetic sand so be sure you give it a try! 😃
