Playing with Moon Sand


Sticking with the BabbaBox theme from earlier this week (Sun, Moon, & Stars), we decided to explore and play with moon sand. I found several recipes for cloud dough online which include mixing  flour with baby oil. Our moon sand is actually just a slight modification to cloud dough. Instead of baby oil we used canola oil, and also substituted wheat flour over white. The finished product looks just like sand! With the addition of some fun shaped spoons and cups, and even some of Sydney’s shell collection, she felt like she was at the beach. Syd really loves this stuff, and can sit and play with it for hours!

Moon Sand Recipe:
4 c. wheat flour
1/2 c. canola oil

  1. I am so glad you linked this wonderful post to Artsy Play Wednesday on Capri + 3. I would like to try this idea with the babies. It looks like so much fun and is safe for them to put into their mouths.
