{DIY} Make your own Moonsand!

Everyone has probably heard of "moonsand" if you have little ones. While it is not a wallet breaker...why buy it when you can make it easily at home and cheaper!

There are alot of recipes out there...this recipe uses oil instead of water to prevent drying out.

What you will need:
  • 3 cups play sand (available at your local hardware store)

  • 1 1/2 cups corn starch

  • 3/4 cups oil to prevent drying out / alternatively you can use water

  • airtight container/ziploc bags

  • To really make it fun make several batches in different colors. You can buy playsand in many colors of the rainbow.
    1. Mix the oil and cornstarch together thoroughly, till nice and smooth.
    2. Gradually mix in the sand, one cup at a time. Really work it together with your fingers.
    3. Just add kids! Let the fun begin! Sand box and beach toys make perfect moulds!
    When you are all done...store in an airtight container/ ziploc bags

    If using water, you'll need to revive it with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Just sprinkle the water over it and work it in.
