When sand gets wet it gets all clumpy, holds its shape and can even be crafted into sandcastles.

Hydrophobic sand changes everything you thought you knew about sand. As you pour the contents into a glass of water watch as the sand repels the water. You can even move the sand around as much as you want and it still won’t get wet. When you are finished, simply scoop the still dry sand out and put back in the container.
