Summer Project: Moon Sand


As we countdown the days until the end of another school year many parents are starting to plan activities for their children for the summer. An activity that seems to appeal to both children and adults alike is Moon Sand Creation

You may have seen moon sand advertised on the television as a moldable sand children can play with that will never dry out.  This sand is perfect for letting your child’s imagination run wild and all it takes is the sand and some simple utensils from around your home to be creative.

Allow your kids to create the sand with a little supervision by mixing 4 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil.  I like to let my kids measure and add the ingredients with my supervision.  At first it will be a little sticky and slimy but once it is mixed together well, it will have a soft moldable texture.

For added creative fun, stop by your local craft store and pick up fine glitter or powdered paint to change the color of the sand.

This project can be a little messy, but it is easy to sweep up with a broom.  If you want to save the sand for future play, simply place it into an air tight container with a lid and keep it in the cupboard.

If dont think you will have the time to create the moon sand on your own. Check out ready to ship options on sites like Amazon.
