Video Of The Week - Silly Putty Reborn With A 'Sandy' Twist

By

CCSS NAS-6

What is better than silly putty - that gooey mixture that flows like a liquid when handled gently, but turns as hard as a rock, when punched or stomped upon? How about one that flows through your hand like sand but can still be used to shape your favorite creations?

That, is exactly what Sweden-based arts and crafts company Delta of Sweden, seems to have conjured up with Delta or Kinetic Sand as it has been renamed by Colorado-based WABA Fun who is now selling the product in the USA. Made from 98% silicon dioxide AKA sand, and 2% polydimethyl siloxane (PDS) a nontoxic material that allows it to be malleable, Kinetic Sand is naturally antimicrobial and reputed to never dry out. It is supposedly also gluten free but hopefully, most of us are not planning to snack on it!

                The good thing is that it doesn't stick to anything. I played with something similar to this but the sand sticks to everything and it takes like an hour to wash off your hands. It doesn't feel sticky, but it is very sticky! The sand mentioned in the article is safe and it is not sticky!
