Homemade Moon Sand this is messy play at its finest.
I chose the flour and vegetable oil combination because Little Miss Toddler will not keep things like this out of her mouth. We did it on the kitchen floor.Clean up involved sweeping up and mopping really well (Think oil residue). Next time I would put an old sheep or newspaper down for easier cleanup or simply do it outside.
This homemade Moon Sand or as some call it Cloud Dough is soft, molds together well and it is wonderful sensory play for even a pretty young child. Little Miss Toddler enjoyed it.
What you need is simple and most everyone has it on hand.
- 8 Cups of Flour (All-Purpose)
- 1 Cup of Vegetable Oil
- A few drops food coloring if you like but not needed. (We skipped this)
In a large bin just mix it all together really well. Done and done.
We tossed in some kitchen scoops, spoons and the like. She had a blast.
Maybe Moon Sand is not what you intended to find or wish to make today? How about some play dough recipes?
