Magic sand: incredibly versatile play sand for the play tray
Posted by Melanie Groenen on
In this blog we take you into the world of magic sand. A special kind of sand that guarantees a lot of fun. We will tell you more about what magic sand is, what you can do with it, our tips for storing it and the ideal amount of sand for the wooden play tray. Read along.
What is magic sand?
Magic sand, play sand, kinetic sand; all terms referring to the same thing. It is nothing more and nothing less than sand used for sensorimotor play. Whereas ordinary sand slips between the fingers and can also cause everything to get dirty (especially in combination with water!), magical sand is a special kind of sand that sticks together, so to speak.
What can you use kinetic sand for?
With kinetic sand, children - as well as adults - can have fun for hours. After all, it does not have only one application, but all sorts of things can be thought up with it. For toddlers, it is fun just to feel the sand or to simply scoop it in and out of a container. Older children will have more fun making figures using magic sand molds.
What is the best way to store play sand?
Basically, kinetic sand does not dry out. You can store kinetic sand in a sealed box or container, but this is not strictly necessary. However, always make sure you store it dry. Namely, kinetic sand and water do not go well together.

Did you know that we also sell wooden play trays? By putting magic sand in a play tray, you ensure that it always stays neatly together. What's also very handy: leftover play sand that has fallen on the table or ground can easily be picked up and put back into the play tray. As a result, little to nothing is lost!
How much magic sand do you need to fill the wooden play tray?
Of course, it all depends on what you find a fine amount of sand for your child to play with. When we look at the play trays we sell, we find that 3 kg of magic sand is more than enough.
