How to make Kai kou Xiao (开口笑)

Do you know there is a dish named kai kou xiao ((开口笑) ? My friend said it made you happy after eating it, that's why these small little ball name 开口笑 ! I love it!

Here are some of the steps to make 开口笑 :

1. Roll a small light brown ball 

2. apply some clear glue on the surface of the ball

3. Sprinkle white sand (  if you can find light brown sand) onto the ball
4. Cut a cross at the top of the ball (show below)

I made a super mini 开口笑 that's why I used art sand. You can make a bigger one. Try it yourself , it is very simple.


  1. hello, may i know where did you get the art sand?

  2. Hi, you can buy it from any bookstores like, popular or art friend., etc
