WHAT IS KINETIC SAND?

Kinetic sand is my favorite sensory play material. Mostly because I love playing with it and I love that it is easy to clean up. You can use it just like Play dough but it won't ever dry out because its made with sand mixed with magic (or some sort of glue) Kinetic sand is perfect for open-ended play and can be used for so many different activities. Read about more benefits of Kinetic Sand in our post WHY WE LOVE KINETIC SAND.

MATERIALS

VALENTINE'S DAY ACTIVITIES

COOKIE CUTTERS

Roll out the play sand with a rolling pin, and use Play Sand with heart or valentine-themed cookie cutters.  Then decorate by drawing with a pointed stick or decorate with objects from your VALENTINE'S TINKER TRAY.

VALENTINE CUPCAKES

Make Valentine cupcakes with sand in a muffin tin or cupcake wrapper and then decorate with more loose parts or other materials. Decorative paper straws make great candles and beads make fun sprinkles.
