Pinned It, Made It: Moon Sand

 We made moon sand this week using the directions on this pin. Fun!

I'm not sure who enjoyed it more--me or the toddlers! They loved it! Toddler Boy (22 months) played with it for a whole hour one afternoon.

Seriously. This is awesome stuff!
Love those chubby hands!

All it involves is mixing 8 cups of flour with 1 cup of baby oil although I added more like 1.5 cups baby oil to get a good consistency. Mix well, using hands to combine.

This is messy--very messy. I have a vinyl tablecloth that I use for kid's projects; I put it on the little table to hold any spills. An old blanket was on the floor.  The toddlers also wore smocks.
I dug out a combination of sand and play dough toys.

This was soft enough to play with easily but packed well for making "cakes". And was great for digging and scooping.

We will be playing with this again!

Oh that does look fun! I know Luke would love to get his hands in that with all of his construction equipment. I'll be giving that a try! Thanks for sharing, Mary Ann. I sure do appreciate you participating in Pinned it, Made it Monday too!

Have a great week, my friend. :)

Hi Mary Ann
I've been wanting to try that - and it is very helpful to hear from a "real person" how is works.
Now, I will try it for sure.

This looks fun...since it's to cold to play in the sandbox, and I have both ingredients! Thanks for sharing!!!
