Update: The boys have played with this sand for months. Until we moved and we couldn’t move a filled sand box. I made it again and what I have learned in the meantime is definitely make sure the sand doesn’t get wet. If it gets wet, let it dry first, before playing with it again. Since the sand is a bit sticky, it doesn’t feel as dry as I had expected (I think that was why I was not really happy with the result), I have dedicated sand toys now. Also, using a different type of sand really helped. Where I had used reptile sand before, with the new batch I used Safe Sand for Sandbox Natural White Playsand. Again I used a big bag of 25 pound and a 500ml bottle of Dimethicone. I am happy with the result and the boys are happy they can play again with this cool sand.
Our first try out of making kinetic sand or moon sand. I’m not really happy with the result, but the boys love it.
How to make Kinetic Sand
As we speak Maximan is building a skate park, from Sand. And he wants to build a volcano.
A bit short, but duty calls. Let me know if you have questions.
