Moon Sand

This past week we enjoyed hosting a fun activity with some friends... making moon sand! I have been really wanting to do this with Holly but figured it might be a bit more fun with friends - it lends itself to a great group activity.

Moon sand is so simple and inexpensive to create. I was thrilled to find a recipe online (I have had this saved for a long time as a 'to do' with Holly). Here is the recipe:

Moon Sand

6 cups fine sand (we used Crayola colored sand)
3 cups powdered corn starch
1 1/2 cups water
a couple drops of vegetable oil

Mix your sand and corn starch well, then add the water and a couple drops of oil. Mix well by hand (part of the fun!). If it is dry add a few drops of water at a time, if it is to wet then add a bit of sand at a time. Enjoy!!!
