Product Description

Sand That “Magically” Repels Water

Normally water and sand make a gloppy sloppy mess. Not with Space Sand! It’s made from a substance that repels water, making it great for sensory play at home or in the classroom. Pour your Space Sand into a clear bowl filled with water, and watch it transform into strange shapes underwater. Or place a few drops of water on top of dry sand and see what happens. Sand stays dry no matter what, so you can reuse it over and over. Mold and shape it with your hands.
