DIY Kinetic Sand
July 25, 2016 No Comments Teaching Ideas montessorisoul


We started our summer with a staycation trip around the South west of England.

Absolutely stunning, but thoroughly exhausting.  Next, a week long course learning abut leading a forest school – fantastic, but exhausting!  Finally an amazing weekend with friends messing about on the river. We need a day to chillax at home and recharge our batteries, not to mention catch up on a mountain of house work!

When we were in cornwall F and S loved the sand on the beach.  Here in Aldeburgh we have pebbles, which I love but the kids aren’t so keen! I have just got a fantastic tuff tray from amazon #affiiate and have always wanted to make some kinetic sand after F bought about a cupful with her pocket money for over £15! After looking at some on my pins on pinterest I found this recipe and thought I’d give it a try. (Thank you GimmieFreebies).

We had great fun making to Kinetic sand as well as playing with it!  We had collect some shells over the weekend which made some lovely patterns.
