This one is so easy and quick to make.
The other day I ordered a ridiculous amount of flour by mistake, so I decided to make some moon sand. This is made with flour and baby oil and your young one can build sand castles with it immediately and pretty much mould it into anything you like.
How to make:
- 8 cups of flour (any that you have lying around)
- 1 cup of baby oil/ vegetable oil (Baby oil is much nicer as it smells yummy and makes your hands soft while you play)
Use any size cup and as many batches as you need. I also used wholemeal flour so that it looked more like sand but you can also add dyes to make interesting colours. Just be careful as these will stain skin and clothes (powder paint seems to work best).
