Activity: Spell Your Name With Kinetic Sand

Kinetic sand can be molded, shaped, and stamped in so many ways.

For young children, using kinetic sand can be a fun way to learn their own name! (Bonus points if the name starts with the letter K, too!)

Letter stamps designed for use with kinetic sand can be helpful for this activity.

The child will need to find the correct stamps, flatten the sand, create letters using the stamps, and then put the letters in the right order.

If you don’t have any letter stamps on hand, kinetic sand is shapable! Help your child shape the sand to create each letter and spell their name.

You might find it easiest to use capital letters if shaping the sand yourself. You could also use a stick or pencil to write in the sand!

For added fun, turn this into an excavation activity! Hide the letters in kinetic sand. (You can use stamps, alphabet fridge magnets, or any other type of physical letter.)

The child will need to dig to find the letters, make sure they have the correct letters, and place them in the right order.

Kinetic sand can be a great tool for a wide variety of learning activities, like learning numbers or (if your child isn’t quite old enough to take on spelling) learning the letters of the alphabet.
