Recipe to Create Edible Kinetic Sand

It's food you can play with! Try this cool edible kinetic sand recipe from Arena Blake's 'Awesome Kids Crafts' cookbook.

Summer is so yummy that you could just shovel it up and eat it. And now, kids can do just that – metaphorically and for real – with this quirky edible kinetic sand recipe-craft that tastes like hot chocolate.

Most of the ingredients you probably already have at home. Gather them and in just a few minutes you can have a pile of moldable, buildable, edible sand that your kids will enjoy for hours.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oil (vegetable or canola)
  • 4 Tbsp. hot chocolate powder
  • Large bowl
  • Fork

Directions

  1. Mix the flour and oil in the large bowl.
  2. Add in the hot chocolate powder.
  3. Stir together for kinetic sand that can be squished, built, molded – and, if you’d like, eaten!
