We've been wanting to make Moon Sand for a while and we finally did. Making Moon Sand is a great way to rediscover your play sand.
To create Moon Sand you'll need:
6 cups of Play Sand
3 cups of cornstarch (or corn flour)
1 1/2 cups of cold water
We mixed all the ingredients in a big plastic tub. We added a little more water and each day it was played with it more water was added. It was fun to make.
It was fun to add plastic creatures and rocks to the Moon Sand. It had a nice texture that my daughter enjoyed. A great new sensory experience.
Moon sand formed into little rock shapes very easily. I think it is called "Moon Sand" because of this quality. We will need to get some toy aliens, astronauts, and space ships to add to the fun.
It is always enjoyable to make something new with things you already have on hand. Moon Sand is definitely one of those experiences. Hope you have fun making Moon Sand!
