playing with it. kind of expensive and worth it because it's the best stuff. i have a variation you can do at home that's pretty cool. watch what happens. here is the recipe. you'll go to the hobby store and just find fine sign. say that 1,000 times. here's your fine sand about, a cup of fine sand. bingo, got it. to that believe it or not the secret is cornstarch. >> isn't it always? >> so here is your i'm going to put in with this batch about a tablespoon. so there's our tablespoon of cornstarch. now i'm going to mix this around so i can kind of get that incorporated into it. you'll see in some batches that we have here in a second that you can vary the amount of cornstarch. that's kind of a cool thing. >> changes it. >> add to that soap. here is about a tablespoon of dish soap. >> you're making what kim is playing with?
that one. so this gets mixed around. that's kind of a mess. then you've just got to be careful about how much water you add. so that's what makes this kind of an experiment. the secret with the cornstarch is a lot of people made that stuff where you mix cornstarch and water and it becomes a solid and liquid at the same time. when we add just a little bit, kim, look at the pink stuff right next to you. isn't that fun? here it is. too. look at this batch here. if it's a little too watery, just let it sit out for a second, but that's not a bad batch. get your hands in these two. you can see the difference. that's a little more coarse. you can pack it as well. >> this is fine, fine. >> if we pack it up like this, watch this. you can back it down and build those little -- that's what's cool. excuse the reach. now we can pack it and try to sculpt with it.
there's your motion sand. as soon as you touch it here it, just crumbles and there is your kind of motion sand. the secret of the cornstarch, the seeds of the cornstarch sit together and there's a little water there. so they'll squeeze together like when you put your feet in the sand at the beach and it kind of washes away. so you get that solid liquid at the same time. this here i just added a lot more cornstarch. i really like that one because you can form a snowball. >> not when you take your hands off. >> look at this one. when you squeeze through your hands, this heck becomes like a play -- this almost becomes like a play-doh. we used about a cup of fine sand, a tablespoon of cornstarch, a tablespoon of that dish soap and a little water, just a little bit there. i'll have to let this one dry out. see how this is a little too
we are going to put all this information on facebook. we'll put it up on 9news.com. it's a nice like diy hack. >> kids everywhere are making this in their living room. >> seriously. when thanksgiving is coming up, the kids are bored and you're trying to cook. make them a bunch of sand. >> i think we'll have to do the walking on water thing. so i better bring in the 100 pounds of cornstarch and the garden hose and this fun. there's nothing like teaching a kid to mess up the house. we put it all there. >> and on facebook as well. >> check it out, everybody, on
