You might be surprised to know that kinetic sand is actually 98 percent regular sand. However, the other two percent is what gives it its unique qualities. To make kinetic sand, regular sand is coated in polydimethylsiloxane and silica. This creates the texture of kinetic sand and actually turns it into a non-Newtonian fluid, which means it can flow like a liquid when it is under pressure but just fall apart when the pressure is removed. Try squeezing the kinetic sand and see what happens when you apply more pressure versus when you stop applying pressure.
