My experience with sand:
when I created my sandbox I used sandtastic white sand. It’s highly reflective and great for kids. I found the kinetic sand is great for adults, but more challenging for kids, (harder on the fingers). Not to mention I made this on my own so I was not about to spend an obscene amount of money for sand. I was going to get home depot play sand, it was available but I opted against the standard sand color. Getting the white sand was the best choice for me. If I want to make a formation, I have a spray bottle with water.

I opted away from making kinetic sand, because you have to keep it air tight when not in use (keep from drying up). it’s made with corn starch and dish soap, as a precautionary, you can probably keep a spray bottle with diluted (10%) bleach or vinegar near by to prevent any possible bacteria/mold. It will start to smell after a few weeks.
