  1. This looks lovely! My kids adore kennetic sand!

  2. Your book looks awesome! Quick question about this sand that I can't find anywhere online... How in the world do you sanitize this sand? I had some in my PreK classroom's large sensory table for several weeks (with the strict rule of washing hands before and after use.) As one of my little ones said, however, it started to smell a bit "germy." I agreed and put the bin aside until I figured out what to do. Ever the resourceful one, and after several requests from my class to bring the sand back, I sprayed it generously with a very diluted bleach and water mix. Thankfully it was after hours because this venture was a BIG mistake! Once dry, the sand had it's correct texture, but what remained was an EXTREMELY noxious chemical smell. Clearly my little de-germing experiment created some type of chemical reaction that didn't work! I had to throw out the whole batch; 8 lbs worth! (Thank God for a Michael's coupon and a teacher discount!) I found an obscure reference a few weeks ago that said simply to freeze the sand to "clean it". Any ideas here? This is a tricky one! Thanks for all you do!

    1. Hmmm I haven't had this issue yet, but we only have 2 lbs of kinetic sand and only my two kids play with it. I wonder if you could put a drop of lavender or tea tree essential oil and mix it in. It would smell nice and help sanitize the sand. Worth trying!
