What to do with Kinetic Sand

Wix Website

Kinetic Sand is a MUST HAVE for construction play of all kinds, and it’s a great sensory experience not just for kids but adults too.


Bring the sandbox indoors because there’s NO CLEAN UP required with this amazing sand. We’ve tried other construction style sand and we weren’t impressed one bit – not only did it not mold properly or hold together, it created a mess that we really didn’t want.

Kinetic Sand on the other hand only sticks to itself, so that means there’s no sand left on hands, hair, clothes, or on the floor! It’s completely dry and non-greasy – PLUS it’s also hypoallergenic, and non-toxic so it’s perfect for your children to play with again and again.


If you’ve ever felt and played with Kinetic sand you will know how awesome it feels – it’s a real sensory experience to play with. It is soft and stretchy yet easily moldable. It can flow through your fingers like liquid and then be squashed into a ball!

Check out this video from WABA Fun, the original creators of Kinetic Sand, to see it in action – you’ll love this!


What can you do with Kinetic Sand? The answer is you can make or mold anything at all – Squeeze it, stretch it, cut it or shape it – or just enjoy how it feels in your hands.

Molds are also available to go with Kinetic Sand to help your child build amazing structures and artistic sculptures that hold their shape with incredible detail!


If you really want some inspiration on Kinetic Sand activities, there’s an entire hardcover book dedicated to 35 different activities for Kinetic Sand!

OR , if a hardcover book isn’t really necessary – Save money and just download the exact same book in ebook form for only $8!

That’s what we did, and it’s really cool!

This ebook focuses on simple, low preparation activities that encourage pretend play, creativity, fine motor skills, and finally, maths and literacy learning.

These are simple activities that use only two or three materials, there are a minimum of two variations per activity, and each activity contains 3 full colour photos.

If you really want the hardcover version so you and your kids can read it together and flip through the actual pages, then the hold-it-in-your-hands book:

35 Awesome Kinetic Sand Activities for Kids

will show you just how versatile and fun kinetic sand can be to play with.


This is such an incredible and versatile product because it feels just like wet sand, and it molds like wet sand – but it never, ever dries out, and just stays fresh and usable – no special sealing or storing required.  You and your kids will love playing with Kinetic Sand!

We think Kinetic Sand is AWESOME, and it provides endless creative fun whilst stimulating your child’s imagination and developing manual dexterity – AND there’s NO MESS.

  1. I’m glad I’ve found this website, so many great ideas, my nephew would love just about everything here (his dad probably too). I’ve always wanted to give him toys to stimulate his creativity and to support his development in the best possible way. I’m myself not a big fan of commercial toys and this site provides so many good ideas. Thank you

    • Thanks Martina – there is so much plastic junk in the world, especially toys, and all that happens is they break apart and end up in the ocean eventually. At least Kinetic Sand just absorbs itself back into nature!

  2. Brilliant invention! Kinetic sand is really captivating to watch for some reason haha. Feels relaxing to watch them for some reason. I might purchase some for my nieces to play with, she’s just 6. Hopefully, it’s not toxic if kids accidentally digest it?

    Where can I purchase the kinetic sand? Which brand would you recommend?

    • Hi Winnie – yes it is an amazing product, lots of fun for kids and adults! I would go with the original WABA Fun brand as the other types of sand we have tried are just not up to it and they leave too many little bits to clean up! You’ll find some links in the post above. Cheers!

  3. Wow, this is definitely a versatile product and one that means anyone can enjoy sand regardless of the time of year. For kids, this is a big win, especially in today’s world where more and more are retreating to the digital arena. By bringing this innovative kind of sand indoors, there are finally other options to turn to in favor of simply just digital media.

    • That’s right Todd – you can bring the beach indoors any time of year with Kinetic Sand! And definitely we need to limit our kid’s digital-only interaction – they need to use imagination and creativity to learn about the world around them!

  4. Hey, Lindsay!
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us! I love watching videos of Kinetic Sand but have never actually played with one.
    I’m thinking about getting one to play with my godson. He loves to play but hates to get his hands dirty. This sounds perfect for him!

    Looking forward to seeing more of your posts. 🙂

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  5. WOW…very cool sand! I love it. I work in an elementary classroom that serves children with all kinds of disabilities. I think this product would be an awesome addition to our classroom for indoor recess times and other therapy activities. Thanks for the information.
    Have a great day!

    • Angela, Kinetic Sand is used in therapy sessions and is also often used in the classroom for special needs children – I think it would make a great addition to your kid’s activities!
