DIY Kinetic Sand: Video

Learn how to make DIY kinetic sand, a fun sensory craft, using household ingredients!


  • baking soda
  • baking powder
  • dishwashing liquid
  • a mixing bowl and spoon



    1. Mix together 2 parts baking soda and 1 part baking powder along with 1 part of dishwashing liquid in a large bowl.

    2. Stir the mixture with a spoon until a sandy/doughy substance forms. Keep adding baking powder if the mixture seems too wet.

    3. Knead the mixture together until it feels sandy and dough-like but not wet. If you have to, add some more baking powder at this point too in order to make it fluffy.

    4. Store your mixture in a plastic container after you finish playing with it!
