Kinetic Sand has been a popular and fun activity for atleast the past two years in the nanny industry and with kids and the adults in their lives. It can be an expensive item to add to your nanny toolbox of fun. I ran across a fun “recipe” to make it at home yourself. This could be a great fun learning project for your nanny kids and you to do one day. You can adapt the level of help depending on the child’s age and skill level.
Regardless you will have fun and the end result will be homemade kinetic sand to have fun with! What is even better about this project is that you not only get to make kinetic sand you get to make SLIME! Who doesn’t love slime?
This kinetic sand recipe has the same elastic qualities as the store bought stuff, it is similar to playdough in the way that you can mold it. But it also gritty (this version is even grittier than the store stuff) and it melts a bit like sand.
