What is magic sand?

Magic sand, moon sand or kinetic sand is a mouldable modelling clay made from flour and oil. The sand is light and airy, yet can be moulded wonderfully.

The biggest advantage of magic sand is that it doesn't stick, making it the perfect way to play with sand indoors. This makes it a great alternative to the sandpit, especially on rainy or cold winter days.

Making magic sand

You can make your own magic sand in a flash - almost as if by magic.

The flour and oil are mixed in a ratio of 8:1. In our recipe, we have used 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of oil. If you want to make more or less magic sand, simply note the ratio and adjust the amount accordingly. If you want to make even more magical sand in different colours, you can simply add a little food colouring to the magic sand.

Ingredients for the magic sand

You will need the following ingredients to make the magic sand:

  • 8 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of oil
  • a large bowl for coloured sand
  • Food colouring

Magic sand for the mud kitchen

As the magic sand is not sticky, it doesn't make as much of a mess as real sand. This makes the magic sand perfect for the home.

All that's missing is a small sandpit for indoors. You can easily build one from the IKEA KNAGGLIG* boxes, IKEA TROFAST* boxes and customised decal to fit it. And it only takes 5 minutes!

Of course, the homemade mud kitchen can also be used outside on the balcony or in the garden - whether with the magic sand or with real sand. The decision is entirely up to you!
