How to Make Kinetic Sand
  • 6 cups play sand
  • 1-1/2 cups corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons dish soap
  • ¾ cup of water (add more if it's too dry)
  1. Add the corn starch to the play sand and mix together until it's well combined.
  2. Mix together the dish soap and water in a separate container until it's fully mixed and a little bit bubbly.
  3. Add the water and dish soap solution to the corn starch and play sand mixture and mix until it's well combined.
  4. If the sand seems too dry, slowly add more water until it reaches a consistency you like.
