We have been playing with kinetic sand a lot lately. Almost daily, actually. So to spice things up a bit, we added some LEGO duplo to the mix. The addition of LEGO to kinetic sand transformed this simple sensory activity into a fine motor stamping activity. And the boys loved it! Plus, they manipulated the LEGO stamping in ways that I didn't originally consider.

You'll only need two items for this fine motor activity:
The boys started off by stamping the tops and bottoms of various Duplo pieces.
The impressions that the Duplo make are pretty neat by themselves, but then my boys had a brilliant idea that I never even considered! J had the idea to build a shape and then stamp the side of his object in the kinetic sand. K joined in too and they spent quite a few minutes assembling shapes and stamping. You could likely even make letters and numbers using the Duplo and then stamp those letters and numbers in the kinetic sand.
