A few days ago I received a text message from a local friend, Allison (who coincidentally I met through PAHM), asking me if I knew how to make Kinetic Sand. Kinetic sand?? What is that?? Cue google! It looked just like moon sand so I sent her our MOON SAND RECIPE. Then……I watched a video. It looked way more interesting than moon sand. Allison and I spoke more about it and then I decided to splurge and order some. It arrived today and I have to say, it was well worth the splurge. It is a bit like moon sand, but its a lot more fluid and kind of feels like cotton candy – or perhaps what I imagine holding a cloud would feel like. It moves, you can mold it, you can stack it, you can stamp in it, and it doesn’t stick to your hands (BONUS). My son is kind of “over” sensory table type play – but he played with this intensely for over an hour and revisited it more than once. Much like WATER BEADS, it was a huge hit (with boy, Mommy, and Daddy). They have two different sizes available on amazon. We purchased the 11 pound bag. Yes, its pricey, but I had some money left on an Amazon gift card.
