Question: Hi I have a 3 year old playing with kinetic sand. While playing I’m not sure if she accidentally dropped some in her mouth. But she says no. I’m just making sure how dangerous if she had a little like less than 1/ 2 teaspoon of it. I’m pretty sure nothing more than even this is just to make sure What will be symptoms to watch out. This happened few hours back. She was playing having dinner as usual

Brief Answer:
No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
There is no need to worry since this sand has no dangerous ingredients which may be poison for her. Only large amount may cause bowel obstruction but in this case she would vomit and have abdominal pain. So in this case, I suggest just to give her more fluids and look for these symptoms. Wish you good health. Regards
