Make Your Own Kinetic Sand (10 lbs for 50 cents!)
My daughter wanted Kinetic Sand for Christmas this year, but the prices are so high! Even moon sand is expensive, and the glow sand is even more! We found a way to make it easy and cheap.
You can make a little or a lot. Make 10 pounds for 50 cents!! Even making 50+ pounds will only cost you about $4!! You can’t beat that!
UPDATE: We added a video showing how to make kinetic sand! (scroll down) And, we also blogged another post showing how to make COLORED Kinetic Sand! Don’t miss it!

If you happen to have a sandbox (or a beach nearby!), scoop up a little sand and make up a batch of Homemade Kinetic Sand for little or no cost. The idea of FREE Kinetic Sand sounds great to me! If not, you can buy it at home improvement stores.
For example, 2.2 pounds of Kinetic Sand on Amazon costs about $17. At local stores near me, such as Michael’s, it’s more than that. Plus, figure that we’re making 10 lbs and 50 lbs in the recipes below.
Not that you would buy 50 lbs at that rate, but 2 lbs? Come on, that’s not much sand!! 5 cups is 10 lbs, so 2 lbs is a cup? A cup of sand?? If you bought 10 lbs on Amazon (and technically you’d need 5 packages, so it would be 11 lbs), it’d run you about $85.
If you bought 50 lbs (or 50.6 lbs because you’d need 23 packages), you’d pay a whopping $391. Not exactly a bargain.
In our “Make a little…” recipe below, we’re making 10 pounds – nearly 5 times as much as the package in store. If we have sand already, then it’s basically free. No sand available? You can buy a 50 pound bag for $2.47.
Or, make the small batch, and you’re using 1/5 of it – for total cost of a mere 50 cents for 10 lbs of Kinetic sand. Compare that to 10 lbs of the prepackaged at $85. $0.50 versus $85.00 – this is a no brainer.
So, you can see why I’m excited! 🙂
