Colorful Kinetic Sand
Here's a fun sensory activity that will happily occupy the kids for hours: It's oozy, maleable, and uses household ingredients. Cornstarch gives the mixture pliability, water makes it ooze, and choosing your own sand allows you to mix and match in any bright color of the rainbow.
