If I had a large space either indoors or outdoors, I would create these with the children (imagine collecting old ties, clothes, ribbons). I love the idea that children can play inside the tents or with the tent itself. It has the appearance of a private space inside yet it is see-thru. All year, children can add to it... Just beautiful.
This DIY recipe for Kinetic Sand only takes 3 ingredients, and costs about a third of what commercial brands of Kinetic Sand retails for. Kids love sensory play like this, and will occupy them for hours. See how to make your own Kinetic Sand here!
