The four ingredients
To make a perfect kinetic sand, you would need these four major ingredients –
1. Play sand
2. Corn starch
4. Dish soap
Apart from these, you would need water, mixing bowls, food colouring (if needed).
Here’s how to make kinetic sandMix together the play sand and cornstarch. It will make it easier to combine when you add the water and will prevent lumps if you pre-mix the dry ingredients. But add very less water, maybe just 1 tablespoon.
Then add the dish soap to the water in a separate container and stir until it’s well mixed and a little bubbly. Add this mixture to the sand and cornstarch mixture. Mix well.
If it looks a little too dry, feel free to add some more water until it gets to a consistency you like. Leave the mixture for about 2 hours.
And after these 2 hours, your kinetic sand is ready!
