Kinetic sand is all the rage - the kids LOVE it! We landed on a homemade recipe, thats taste safe, and after testing it out a few times, landed on the perfect combo. You only need 5 ingredients and about 5 minutes to mix it up.

2. 1/2 cup Cornstarch

3. 1/2 cupWhite Sugar

4. 1 Tbsp Cream of Tartar

5. About 1/2 Water

(6. Food Coloring - optional)

First, mix all the dry ingredients together well with a wisk. If you choose to use food coloring, mix a few drops into a measure cup of water, and then add 2 tablespoons at at time into the dry mix, and blend well with wisk. Continue adding water, 2 tbsps at a time, until you reach your desired constancy, our magic number was 4 tbsps. (Over adding water will turn your sand to mush after it sits for a few hours.) Mix WELL with your wisk until there are no clump. Thats all! Now have some fun playing.
