how to make kinetic sand

It is no secret that children love to play and get messy, but why would any parent, guardian, or educator want to bring a mess into their home? Childrenplay in all sorts of waysto develop fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and social skills. There are activities you can do at home or school to aid children in developing these skillsone of them is encouraging sensory play.

Sensory play can build nerve connections in the brain's pathways, which will help little ones complete more complex learning tasks later in life. It can also help calm an anxious or frustrated child, and it helps kids learn sensory attributes: hot, cold, hard, soft, sticky, and dry.

Makingkinetic sandis a great sensory play activity and one that a child can assist in making. Have them be your scienceassistant and practice skills of measuring, pouring, and mixing. Not only will they gain confidence by making something for themselves, but youll feel proud watching it unfold.

Use your spoon measurer to measure out two tablespoons of corn starch, and add it to your sand. Help a child get an accurate measurement by having them scoop the corn starch with the measurer, and then use a finger to level out the powder in the spoon by brushing it across the top.

Since kinetic sand is made up of 98 percent sand and 2 percent polymersyou will need to make a solution containing polymers to add to the sand. The polymers that we need for our kinetic sand are found in dish soap.

Add at least 6 drops of food coloring into the soapy water solution. We used red and blue food coloring to make purple kinetic sand. The darker the soapy water solution is, the more colorful your sand will be. It takes more food coloring in the water then you think it does. Should you decide later to add more food coloring, you can do so when you are mixing your sand.

Slowly pour thesolution into your sand. If you pour too fast, your sand will be runny. You are aiming for a consistency of a really thick milkshake. It's best to take this step slow and mix the sand with the solution as you goyou will not need to use all the solution you made.

The best part of making kinetic sand is playing with it afterward. Use a plastic knife or fork to try slicing your sand. Have fun with cookie cutters and sandcastle molds. If you are planning to save your sand, package it in an air-tight container or zip bag. Note that the sand may start to dry after a while (the air will evaporate the liquid in the sand). If it does, add some more soapy water solution to continue playing. Enjoy!

This week is LEGO Week so we have dozens of cool ideas that we are sharing along with some of our favorite bloggers! We have been dying to play with kinetic sand... and so we finally did this week! I don't know how we waited so long... the stuff is seriously amazing. Today I am excited to share three ways you can play with kinetic sand and LEGO! Probably the first thing you need to do is either buy or make kinetic sand. We decided to buy our Kinetic Sand on Amazon from Wacky-tivities. It was excellent. Growing a Jeweled Rose shares a DIY kinetic sand recipe you could make if you prefer. In order to play with our LEGO guys and the kinetic sand we first spread out the sand on a rimmed baking sheet. I only had one package and am now ready to go buy a package for each of my three kids... and one for me! It is that cool. Here are the fun ways we played with kinetic sand and LEGO: 1. Hide and seek with minifigures & kinetic sand We started off by grabbing our favorite minifigures and bringing them down to play in the kinetic sand. They walked around, made prints, and then got hidden! Hide and seek in kinetic sand with minifigures was a HIT! One kid would break the minifigures apart and then hide each of the pieces throughout the sand on the baking sheet. Then the next child would go and dig through the sand to find all of the minifigure pieces and then reassemble them! Putting them back together was kind of like a little puzzle. After that, the next kid would break them all apart and hide them, and the next kid would get to find them. The game was actually a great way to practice taking turns and oh boy did my kids have fun trying to find the hardest places EVER to hide the minifigures... in the kinetic sand. It was hysterical. We played this game for FOREVER. 2. Stamping with LEGO in kinetic sand. Next we worked on stamping with LEGO in kinetic sand. You can find more details about Kinetic Sand LEGO Stamping over on And Next Comes L. We did a similar activity printing with playdough and LEGO and the kids loved it... so of course we had to try it with kinetic sand too! 3. LEGO Imprint Matching Game with kinetic sand. We also had fun using regular LEGO and LEGO duplo and making marks in the kinetic sand. We tried out Mama Papa Bubba's idea of doing a LEGO Play Dough Imprint matching game but instead we used kinetic sand! It was awesome! Pop over to Mama Papa Bubba's post to check out the full tutorial of their LEGO Play Dough Imprint matching gameand use kinetic sand instead. Have you ever tried out kinetic sand? Have you ever used it with LEGO? One tip is to make sure you have toothpicks on hand... if any sand gets in the minifigs, but it is super easy to get out with toothpicks. We have loads of other Thursday LEGO Week activity posts to share with you too! You can catch all of the posts from this series on our 2nd Annual LEGO Week landing page. Here are several of them: DIY LEGO Picture frames from Lalymom LEGO Treasure Hunt Sensory Play from Little Bins for Little Hands LEGO Handwriting Mats from This Reading Mama

This has to be the BEST and easiest kinetic sand recipe around! If you love the way kinetic sand feels out of the box, why not make your own DIY kinetic sand at home and save! Kids love this type of play sand that moves and it works magically for a variety of ages. Add this homemade kinetic sand recipe to your bag of sensory recipes, and you will always have something fun to whip up any day you want!

My son loves to explore new textures, and it never gets old for us to pull out one of our easy to make sensory creations and whip up something for the afternoon, especially if the weather isnt cooperating.

Kinetic sand is an excellent addition to your preschool activities! Even a busy box or small bin with a lid filled with a batch of kinetic sand, a few small trucks, and a little container is a great start! Transform any morning or afternoon with this activity.

Kinetic sand is a really neat material because it has a bit of movement to it. Its still moldable and shapeable and squishable! The cornstarch, dish soap, and glue all make this come together for a very fun activity that provides an amazing tactile experience.

Although this kinetic sand is very similar to the store-bought kind, it will still have its own unique texture. If your sand is too dry add a bit more glue, and if it is too sticky mix in a bit more cornstarch.

Kinetic sand is an interesting texture. Have you ever made oobleck? Its a bit similar where the mixture doesnt quite feel like a solid or a liquid. Thats called a Non-newtonian fluid and you can read more about that here.

A small dustpan and brush are perfect for little spills. You can even take it outside. If you want to limit indoor mess, put down a dollar store shower curtain or old sheet first. Simply shake it out when you are done!

is kinetic sand safe?

is kinetic sand safe?

Do you also have a child who cannot keep still unless you take him outside and give him a place to dig into and do stuff with sand? My older son is like that, hes four, and for two years now he dreams about being a digger operator when he grows up. Its all well when its warm outside but a bit of a pickle in winter. Thats when the kinetic (or magic) sand came in handy, but of course, I had to know immediately is it really safe to give to such a small child?

Kinetic sand is safe when you touch it and play with it using just your hands. But its suitable for children three years old and up, as younger children may choke trying to swallow it. Second, even for bigger ones when eaten in large quantities it may cause problems and may have to be removed surgically.

Are there any precautions to take and what will happen if your child eats a lot of kinetic sand? You will find out in the text below; Ill also give you some advice about how to make the play with kinetic sand even safer.

To sum it up, kinetic sand is as safe as Lego bricks. If you use it properly everything is fine, but giving it to younger children without supervision not so good idea. Kinetic sand is made of well sand (98%) and polydimethylsiloxane. This second ingredient makes the sand particles stick to each other but not to other surfaces. So you get to play in the wet sand that doesnt dry out. The original kinetic sand is supposed to maintain its properties for a long time, and it does, which cannot be told about kinetic sand made by other companies.

The producer makes it clear that only 3-year-olds and older children should play with it. Make sure you get high-quality sand like this one from Amazon. But please, explain to your child not to eat the sand. Ever.

The sand is not toxic, so it wont poison your children if they eat it. The problem lies in the very special sands properties. When the sand gets to the bowels it still keeps reshaping, every time the bowels contract to move it along. So the sand may be stuck in the bowels, and it may turn out the only way to remove it is during surgery. Of course, eating bits of it wont make your child too much harm its only dangerous when eaten in large quantity, like half of the box for example.

That is why, you should not let your children play with the kinetic sand by themselves, especially when they are younger. Take special precautions when you have a moving infant in the house. For the time that the older kids are playing with kinetic sand, put junior for a nap as the thought of putting the colourful, yummy blobs to the mouth may prove to be irresistible. And Im not so sure about every three years old either. My younger daughter is three but every time we bake cookies she ends up eating the dough. She also eats gypsum from the walls, poster paint, glitter and play dough. So no kinetic sand for her.

Obviously, playing with kinetic sand in your house means that your children get to do sand pies, organize excavations and shape weirdly looking animals every time they want. You can put the sand in moulds and make everything you can think of. There is so much you can use to play: cookie cutters, straws, make roads for vehicles, build castles. Your child can even slice it with the plastic knives. There are many versions of the sand some of it looks like the real, normal sand, but others are colorful, so there are no limits to your creativity.

Well, I think thats enough of an answer! But what is also important, playing with kinetic sand is very good for childrens development as well, especially when they have a sensory processing disorder. Its a condition when for example a child is very touch sensitive. Stimulating hands with harsh and at the same smooth sand may be helpful in the therapy and speed up resolving a childs sensory processing issues.

Of course, you may be one of those parents with good behaving children, who when you told them to pack the sand back to the box will do it. But if you are raising shoguns as I do then prepare to find the sand everywhere. But before you start fussing about it, think how much your children are learning at the moment and give them time to really experience kinetic sands properties.

The other thing is, when you keep it in a box with an open lid, it gets dusty the same thing when you play with it on a not so recently wiped floor. And unfortunately, when the sand gets too dirty, it does not work as well anymore. So make sure you keep it in the closed box.

If you are not afraid of mess and want to give your child the opportunity to work with their sense of touch, you can also prepare homemade kinetic sand. I guess you will have to experiment some with the proportions to get the right kind of sand, but its worth it. All the recipes include adding sand so the mixtures are not exactly edible, but in my opinion, its still safer than the manufactured one.

The sand has to be really dry. You can even put it in the oven for some hours (5 hours in 120C). Mix starch and glue in a bowl until you get a nice slime. Mix the slime into the sand. Do it slowly, using tablespoons. Wait for the best consistency for you.

As Ive told you, my three-year-old daughter loves to put stuff in her mouth (partially because its soooo fun to look at my suddenly widened eyes and hear my pleadings: spit it out!). Thats why I started to give her moon sand (made of flour and water with oil) very bio, very healthy. Its a win-win: shes playing and eating, and I have one meal less to cook (Nah! Just joking. Shes not supposed to eat that as well, but when the inevitable happens I keep calm). So if you have an infant or your child loves eating things he shouldnt heres something for you.

Use 1 cup of oil for 8 cups of flour. If you want to make the sand colourful, put oil into bowls and add dye. Then mix it really well. Take your time it will mix eventually. Start adding flour. You can use cup of flour and two tablespoons of oil for each bowl. The key is not to give up with mixing too soon. It works, really!

Are slimes safe? Unfortunately, recent research shows that manufactured slimes may contain too much of a chemical called Boron. This ingredient may cause vomiting, cramps and irritation and may even affect fertility. That is why it is probably safest to avoid every Borax-based slime and go for homemade ones.

Is non-Newtonian liquid safe? This type of liquid is very interesting as it behaves like a solid and liquid at the same time. Its made of cornstarch and water, so it is perfectly safe to play with. It is also very easy to make, and you may show it and give even to very young children.

The idea of lowcostplayground.com came up because we wanted to create an ultimate resource on free play, games, and activities. In the past, we didnt have expensive toys and we had a great time, right? So we want to spread an idea that fun is free and you dont need to spend a fortune to enjoy time with your kids. Over time LowCostPlayground.com grows and we write also about other parenting topics.
