Introduction: DIY KINETIC SAND! JUST LIKE REAL KINETIC SAND! AMAZING SAND "SLIME"!

We tested this recipe SO many different ways and finally found one that is almost exactly like the real Kinetic Sand you can buy! And it's SO easy to make!


You will need:

Fine sand (we bought Ashland brand at Michaels, but you can even use beach sand, just sift it first)

PVA glue

Baking soda

Saline solution or eyedrops (see note below)

Shaving cream

Water

*Note about eyedrops/saline solution: Make sure that you see either Boric Acid or Sodium Borate in the ingredients. If not, check for the word “Buffered” on the package. If it says this, you are good to go!

    If you are in the US, Elmers or CraZArt (both at Walmart) are PVA glues. Otherwise, not always, and it usually doesn't say on the bottle. PVA is Polyvinyl Acetate. If your glue isn't PVA, you won't get slime. If you are unsure, test with a teaspoon of it and see if it turns into slime with a pinch of baking soda and some saline solution. Hope that helps!

    how do you store it? Does it dry out eventually?

    We store it in an airtight container. We haven't had it very long so it's not dried out, but have tried adding a tiny bit of water (like a teaspoon) into a bowl and then mixing the kinetic sand into it, and kneading until it's fully absorbed. It seems to work well to moisten it so we think that will be a good solution. We use the same method to rehydrate slime (but add a bit more water). :)
