I found a recipe for DIY kinetic sand online - and I just had to try it.

Kinetischer Sand

Things needed

  • 2 kg sand
  • 80g cornflour/cornstarch
  • 100ml water
  • few drops of detergent


Mix sand and cornstarch in a large tub.

Now mix water and detergent and add to the sand-starch mix.

If you want to store the sand for more than a few days, add some vinegar or tea tree oil to the water, the sand will then stay fresh for up to 3 months if stored in an airtight container and cool.

If you find the sand to be a little dry when using it the second time around, just add a little of the liquid mix until you reach the desired texture.

No time to make your own?

There are some readymade alternatives:
