DIY Kinetic Sand with Coloured Sand
There are so many ways for kids to explore with fun and bright coloured sand and we wanted to share this recipe for making your own kinetic sand.
Whether its white for creating a Winter Wonderland play or bright pink for creating a colourful Willy Wonka world, the sky is the limit. Here is what you will need:
* 5 cups of coloured sand
* Total of 1 cup + 3 tablespoons of corn starch
* Half a tea spoon of dish washing liquid diluted in 1 cup of water
Put the sand in a container, add corn starch and mix thoroughly, then add water with diluted dish washing liquid. Mix well and keep in a sealed container.
You can adjust the texture of your kinetic sand by adding more water. The texture needs to be moist, but not slimy. If you feel like the sand is too wet, then leave the container lid open for it to dry up a little. This sand can keep for a few months and if you find it getting dry after some time, just add a little water as an easy solution. Enjoy!
