If you can’t take the children to the beach this summer, take the beach to them.
Have you ever heard of Kinetic Sand? It’s super cool but extremely difficult to describe. You may be thinking that it sounds just like Play-Doh and it is similar, but also much different. Kinetic Sand is a sand-like substance that is easily moldable, yet also free flowing. It hardens when squeezed, yet “melts” when released. It has the properties of wet sand, yet is not wet. It sticks to itself, yet is not sticky. It is soft, yet not fluffy. Like I said, difficult to describe! And when my friend Karen first told me about it through the phone, I said, hang on, let me pop over! This resulted in a super fun play date!
Sand play stimulates and develops children’s fine motor and creative playing skills and Kinetic Sand is the perfect material for open-ended, non-directed play. It leaves no sand or residue on your hands and is great for sensory therapy. Kinetic Sand is also great for children with allergies – it is wheat, gluten and casein free and 100% safe and non-toxic.
Best of all, kinetic sand cleans up pretty easily because it is designed to stick to itself rather than to skin. Also, it doesn’t dry out. You can leave it out and it works just the same. But we decided to clump all the sand together and put it back into the bag.
I highly recommend making the investment in a bag or two! Get your Kinetic Sand over at wabafun.eu
Press cookie cutters down into flattened sand or pack it into little cups and flip them over to build sand castles and further develop those small muscles in the fingers and hands. The fine motor benefits are seemingly endless!
And yes you can even stick your face in it! Lol!
