How to Make Aqua Sand

Did you ever play with Aqua Sand when you were younger? I never did. I feel that my mum would have hated having it in the house; she’s not a fan of sand. Aqua sand is very different though, its sand that you can play with in water, without it getting wet! It is also very easy to make at home.

Make sure you follow my activities board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own Aqua Sand you will need:

  • Coloured sand
  • Scotchgard
  • Tray

Make sure you do this first part in a well-ventilated room.

Scotchgard is one of those random products that you may have in the back of your cupboard from when you’ve bought a pair of suede shoes and need to weather protect them.

Tip your coloured sand (one colour at a time) onto a tray and spray with the Scotchgard. Give the tray a shake and spray again. Leave it too try.

We did about 5 different colours in total.

When you play with it, you will need a plastic tub filled with water. The sand is mouldable under the water, but when you take it out it returns to normal sand. It is really very cool.

We made it because YC wanted to make her own aquarium (obviously not with real fish), but the coloured sand turned the water odd colours. So I suggested making this aqua sand instead.

If you enjoyed making this aqua sand be sure to check out my downloadable world snap game, sand mandalas, and counter top shuffleboard.
