Kinetic sand sensory
Kinetic Sand is almost like a sand substance that is easily moldable, yet also free flowing. It hardens when squeezed, yet comes apart when released. It sticks to itself, yet is not sticky. It is soft, yet not fluffy.
Kinetic Sand is a hands-on material, it can help develop fine motor skills! Squeeze it, squish it, or smash it with a potato smasher to strengthen hands. Poke it or pinch it to further develop those index finger skills. Roll it into balls or flatten it with a rolling pin to developbilateral skills. Scoop it or cut it to practice grasping and using tools such as spoons, ice cream scoopers, and knives. Press cookie cutters down into flattened sand or pack it into little cups and flip them over to build sand castles and further develop those small muscles in the fingers and hands. The fine motor benefits are endless!
Kinetic Sand is the perfect sensory material for kids who either crave or are sensitive to tactile input. Kids who want to touch everything and are constantly seeking tactile input will gladly touch, squeeze, and play with Kinetic Sand. On the other hand, kids who are sensitive to or avoidant of “messy play” experiences, or who are hesitant to try out new things in general, will likely be open to engaging with Kinetic Sand due to its soft, non-sticky texture.
