Have you played with Kinetic Sand before? It is absolutely amazing stuff to play with and my boys love when I pull it out for a quick, no prep sensory activity. 

We recently added some colorful dollar store cups to the kinetic sand experience with this kinetic sand activity for kids.

It was a perfect way to explore math concepts, work on fine motor skills, and encourage imaginative play.

Toddlers & Preschoolers Will Love this Kinetic Sand Activity!

Now I have to say that when you fill the tall tube shots with kinetic sand, the result ends up looking like a little poop log. Seriously. That's why I didn't share any pictures of them, except for this one.

Regardless, the cups make awesome molds for the kinetic sand. Just fill them up and then you can hold the resulting 3D shape in your hands!

The cups also work great to do some stamping. For example, you can see J making cookies here.

K was a master muffin maker (awesome alliteration alert!). He loved to put the "muffin" in and out of his "muffin cup."
