::: moon sand recipe

We love ‘moon sand’ or ‘magic sand’ for sensory sand play. You can buy it from art and craft suppliers, but it is fairly expensive.

When we did a post on it a while ago, some kind people sent in the recipe so we could make it ourselves at a fraction of the cost.

Mix together:

4 cups sand

2 cups cornflour

1 cup of water.

We gave it a go and although different from the commercial sort …

it was still very successful.

The children had a lot of fun with it.

When it dried out in the sun a bit, it crumbled up beautifully and was easily restored with a bit more water added to it.
