Kinetic Sand Rainbow

Kinetic sand is a super fun sensory activity and it is (SLIGHTLY) less messy than playdough (we still play with it outside). Here we made rainbows to brighten our day and then used our imaginations to expand play beyond the original activity. We used a kinetic sand set my daughter got for her birthday, but check out Pinterest for homemade recipes if you want to make it yourself!
