Yesterday I went out to eat with some friends to celebrate getting my NT2 programma II diploma. My taalcoach (language coach – from SamenSpraak) arrived with some gifts. There were three of them. One book about Dutch language (puzzles to help you learn the language), one 2015 daily calendar from Onze Taal (“Our Language”) and a third wrapped gift that was weirdly heavy.
Weird but cool! I got kinetic sand. Check out this YouTube video.

Note the pictures above show only half of the sand we were given; it was easier to keep the amount smaller to test what it looks like.
And finally, an image from the official website:
