Do your kids love sand?
Mine sure do, but as I mom I find it to be quite messy.  Today, I decided to try tossing a few ingredients into our sand to see if we could eliminate some of the clean-up from our play.  What we ended up with was just too fun!

STICKY SAND: Mold it, build it, & CONTAIN IT! This sand acts wet but isn't! It sticks together well, but it does not stick to skin. My kids love this stuff, and I love the less-messy alternative to traditional play sand!

Sticky sand is a perfect molding sand for sculpting and creating.  Sticky sand also vacuums up easily, making it great for both indoor and outdoor use.  Are you ready for the recipe?

Store sticky sand in a covered bin or container between play times, and it will last indefinitely.

A Few Tips:  You can find large bags of play sand at Home Depot for under $5.  We have played with the same bag so many times, and we still have plenty of sand left.  If you don't have a Home Depot near you or you would like to purchase sand online you can find it for a good price here.
