Foamy Sand Made from Two Ingredients

Outdoor $
Sculpting, Concoctions, Educational, Clay & Playdough

Activity Overview

With two ingredients you can literally whip up a whole lot of fun and a sensory activity that will keep little ones occupied for hours. I recommend this as an outside activity because it can get a bit messy. If you have kids who love the sandbox, they are certain to love this new twist to playing with sand.

Use your hands to manipulate the new sand foam texture or add tools like craft sticks, spoons, cups and even sand toys and trucks for hours of hands on play. Toddlers and you certain to be enthralled with this exciting new medium to play with. Be prepared to get messy, but don't worry, water will easily wash it all away.

Materials Needed

  • Sand
  • Unscented shaving foam
  • Bucket
  • Spoon
  • A shallow tray or a plastic table cloth
  • Toy trucks, cups, spoons, craft sticks

How to Make and Play

  1. Fill a bucket with sand and add a generous amount of shaving cream.
  2. Mix with a large spoon until the consistency is light and fluffy.
  3. You can tweak the amount of shaving cream needed by the consistency you like and how much sand you use.
