Easy Homemade Kinetic Sand

Kinetic sand can assist children with fine tuning their fine motor development as it  is a hands-on material it encourages children to squeeze, squish, smash, cut, poke, pinch, roll, and flatten it. They can also scoop it up with utensils and build castles, and mold shapes and so much more!

You will need
  • 2 ½ cups fine sand (coloured)
  • 1 ½ cups cornstarch
  • ½cups oil
Let’s begin
  1. Mix sand and corn-starch together.
  2. Add oil and mix well.
  3. When there are no oily spots and no dry spots, the sand is ready for play time!
  4. If you wish to make this more like moon sand, you can mix in 1 tablespoon of dish soap at a time.
