The weather wasn’t cooperating with me yesterday, so I tried to find something for the kids to do inside. I found a recipe that I had “pinned” on Pinterest about Moon Sand. I clicked on the picture, only to find it was just that, a picture. Luckily, the instructions were on the “pin” itself. Be warned, this recipe is MESSY, but oh so much fun for the kids!
I figured I could do this! Yep, I went to the pantry, but I realized I didn’t have 8 cups of flour. No problem, 4 cups flour and 1/2 cup baby oil later….I have Moon Sand AND two happy kids. The Moon Sand felt like really soft sand, the kids liked squishing it in their hands and pouring it back and forth into the different containers.
It was messy, but that’s why I have a vacuum. They had so much fun that we will definitely be bringing out this recipe again for play time.
Afraid of making the mess in the house? No worries, take it outside on the driveway or a picnic bench. Have fun and enjoy. You can also use this for a sensory bin and add small toys for the kids to find and locate.
