To make it more exciting for your children, you can buy all sorts of fun kinetic sand kits so they can enjoy molding, you can also buy already made kinetic sand in stores it’s best and easier to make your own as you can make the quantity of your choice.
There are different ways of making kinetic moon sand, some use water and dish soap which end up being more of a sand slime.
