Have you ever played with magic sand?
We first heard of this amazing substance through our amazing monthly kit with Steve Spangler Science Club. His monthly kit is by far the best out there when it comes to kids science. You will love every single monthly delivery! Each thematic kit includes several activities to go along with the theme, building upon one another.
Seriously magic sand is ridiculously cool. Even when it gets wet, the sand stays dry. True story.
Do you want to know the secret?
Magic Sand is the Coolest
Here is what you need:
- Magic Sand
- A bowl
Magic sand looks like typical sand. Here is the trick. Not only is it dyed a beautiful color, but it is also coated with a substance that repels water. The coating keeps the sand dry even when it is immersed in water! You can build all sorts of creations underwater with magic sand.
What happens with this sand is pretty darn magical. Kids truly enjoy hands-on science.
Kids go nuts with the absolute coolness of this material.
Keep children interested and intrigued by asking questions:
- What is happening with the sand?
- Why can we mild the sand?
- Who does this sand differ from the sand we play with at the beach?
- What do you think might be causing or helping the sand to become moldable?
