"I still say, 'Shoot for the moon; you might get there.'"
The littles spent some time today making moon sand at one of our local free libraries. They had just got done with swim class and of course playing in some beach sand. (More of the point of making mud.) In our home we have one small container of kinetic sand or moon sand if you prefer. That stuff isn't cheap. To be honest, like most material it ends up being swept up from the floor and wiped off the table.
When I saw this fun event, I of course was excited. The littles got right to work with mixing the ingredients. It seemed to be a bit of a balance between the two that you had to have. The ingredients are simple and you probably have them at home.
4 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Cup of Baby Oil
*Food coloring is optional
Mix the flour and baby oil together.
Once mixed well then add food coloring.
This part might take a bit. Not sure on what might be better for coloring.
Now that all the ingredients are well mixed, then the fun starts. The kids enjoyed hours of fun with this at home after they got it home. There was 20 cups of moon sand. We might have 4 cups of that left. It sort of disperses as it goes. Thank you to Amanda at the Norwood Public Library for this amazing day.
