  1. Hi Menucha! I am a new Pre-K and K teacher and I just discovered your site. I am loving it! What’s your opinion with using different materials for the “sand” and “water?” Do you think kinetic sand and blue pluffle would go together, or would it make a mess more quickly than the shredded paper? I’d love for the colors to stay separate for as long as possible, as it seems to me the dramatic play element would be lost once the colors are mixed. I’d love to hear your thoughts, thank you!

    1. Thank you! I think you can use different materials but I’m not sure anything would really stay separated well. The Blue pluffle is very lightweight. But a lot of pieces would get mixed in. The shredded paper, if put down in beds mostly still intertwined might work best. You can do play Sand (instead of kinetic) and something totally different like dyed rice (kitniyot, not chametz if that matters) so that you can sift it out after. I haven’t tried sand and playfoam so I’m not sure, but I don’t feel like it would really stay separate.

    2. @Menucha Citron Ceder, thank you so much for your response! The dyed rice and sand is a great idea, thank you!
