Moon Sand is a fun activity for kids of all ages.
Moon Sand is an awesome way to spur on creativity with your kids, without having an incredible mess. And, the best part is, if they leave it out, it won’t dry up like play dough! I’ve always loved letting my kids play with Moon Sand, but it can get expensive! I never knew how incredibly easy it was to make my own – until now!

Baby Oil (did you know they sell this at the dollar store?)
All Purpose Flour
In a large bowl, simply mix together 1/2 cup of baby oil, and 4 cups of flour. Mix well. There will be some lumps. Smash it between your fingers, and if it makes a solid mass, you did it! Isn’t that simple?
Note: Unless you use an oil based food coloring (which is typically used for coloring candies) you will not be able to dye your Moon Sand. If you happen to have oil based food coloring, you can mix some with the baby oil first, and then add it to your flour.
