But sometimes I get roped into playing with her and it's not like I don't want to play with her, it's just that I am **not** in her head when she plays and she has preferences that of course I am not following because **I can't read her mind** and it's frustrating for both of us. The [kinetic sand is kind of cool](https://amzn.to/3vvxVcz). It handles like sand but is a **lot** less messy and handles more like play-dough. This sand is easy to clean up. I can't imagine what playing with real sand would be like. Her set came with a crane and dump truck, but for whatever reason we can't get them back in the way there were designed, so it's[ zip lock bags to the rescue](https://amzn.to/3vfPPAe) for the sand to go in when we're done playing I think this cost about $15.00 for the set, which isn't that bad I guess [check price](https://amzn.to/3PxwTUm)
