Making Moon Sand – Easy Peasy and Fun!

If you havent given making homemade moon sand a go, hopefully this post will spur you on! There are several different recipes out there in blogland right now, but the one I had everything for was a flour and baby oil recipe. I mixed together 9 cups flour and 1 1/2 cups oil to make this stuff:

Im loving the texture and consistency its very soft, and is easy to form into towers and walls, then break down and start again. Both my kids loved it. I put it in our turtle sandbox and let them have at it.

Emma made a fairy castle, but what theyve really enjoyed has been scooping, pouring, and touching. Its just irresistible! Even I want to get in there. 🙂

Definitely something well be doing again, and so far weve been playing in the same moon sand outside for 3 days so its worth saving for later, too. I bought some extra cheap flour today so I can add more tomorrow.

The only downside to this is that it is messy to sit in, especially if your little one is wet at all (obviously). But totally worth it in my opinion!

Have you ever made homemade moon sand?
