from 3 years: Kinetic Sand: Magical kneading fun for children - 5 sets in comparison

The special thing about Kinetic Sand is that it can be shaped under pressure without coming into contact with water. Similar to play dough. And yet it is natural quartz sand to which a special ingredient has been added: polydimethylsiloxane, a type of (non-toxic) binding agent. As a result, Kinetic Sand changes its consistency as if by magic when it is kneaded. Another special feature is that the modeling clay is available in different colors - this breathes even more life into children's imaginative creations. In the following we present five different Kinetic Sand sets. We also tell you how you can make the magic sand yourself.

1. Sandisfying Set

In addition to the quartz sand (453 g red and 453 g blue), this Kinetic Sand Set contains all sorts of handicraft tools for shaping, mixing, rasping and playing: a twister with attachment for ribbons and rasp, a pestle and a modeling aid, a Shape cutter and a scoop, a slicer and a hemisphere, a mold and a phone holder and a sandbox with a backdrop.

2. Ice Cream Set

The special thing about this set is that the Kinetic Sand smells: the brown mass smells of chocolate, the white of vanilla and the pink of strawberries - based on popular ice cream flavors. That's why it comes with matching gadgets, such as an ice cream bucket and sundae, ice cream cone and waffle maker, scoop and spoon.

3.Castle Mold Set

This variant is also a popular Kinetic Sand Set: It contains ten small castle molds and ten bags, each with 127 grams of sand in different colors. What is particularly practical here is that the small containers have a lid to store the modeling clay in when it is not in use. As a result, the sand does not dry out and can be reused.

4. Sandbox-Set

Kinetic Sand is intended for home use so that children can play with sand even on rainy days - or when there is no playground nearby. But even if the mass can be easily swept up, a mat should always be used when playing. Or a matching plastic sandbox including sand (454 g), three molds and a shovel.

5. Regenbogen-Mix-Set

This set includes everything kids need to start mixing rainbow colors: 383 grams of Kinetic Sand (127 grams each of red, yellow and blue sand), a pestle and sand scoop, three punches, a cutting tool and a cylinder mould. Colorful rainbow creations can be created in just a few simple steps.

And another tip: Kinetic Sand can dry out over time if you don't keep it in a closed container. It is best to use a plastic box or a cling bag to protect the modeling clay from drying out. Otherwise, you can also order individual refill packs in different colors (e.g. pink, blue or green).

In fact, it should be possible to mix up Kinetic Sand at home, albeit not with the same ingredients as the original (unless you're a chemist). To achieve a similar consistency that has the same effect when kneading, you will need the following ingredients: either 960 grams of flour, 120 milliliters of sunflower oil and a food coloring of your choice. Or you can mix four cups of fine (sifted) bird sand, two cups of cornstarch and one cup of water together. Best in a large mixing bowl with a whisk, the food coloring is only mixed in at the end - done!

One more tip at the end: In order to achieve the right consistency, the amount of water is crucial. Too much liquid makes the sand too soft, too little sand makes it too hard.
