Turn Household Ingredients into Hours of Fun
Kids love kinetic sand because it’s soft and silky, stretchable and moldable, feels great in your hands and runs through your fingers, and sticks to itself – not you! (Moms love this part. If it gets on the floor, it recombines easily. No need to drag out vacuums or mops.)
But if you don’t happen to have any on hand, here’s a quick, easy solution. Make your own version with a few items you already have in your pantry: baking powder, baking soda and dishwashing liquid.
Check out the video to see how it’s done.
FYI, unlike store-bought kinetic sand, this homemade version will dry out. Store in an air-tight container and it should keep about a week. You can try rehydrating it starting with a teensy bit of water. If it just doesn’t regain the right consistency, you can always grab a sponge and use it clean bathroom tile or something. Waste not!
