This Moon Sand recipe for kids is a fun, easy DIY activity that lasts forever and kills childhood boredom. I actually never had Moon or Kinetic Sand growing up, but I remember being in awe of the commercials – a moldable sand that crumbles? Amazing. We often play with conventional Play Dough or our homemade 2 Ingredient Play Dough, but this is a refreshing alternative with loads of sensory activities to go along with it. Now, I can live out my childhood fantasy at home, with my kiddos.
You only need two simple ingredients (three if you’re opting for color sand), it only takes a few minutes to assemble, and stores perfectly in a Tupperware container.
Moon Sand ingredients
Oil (I used vegetable oil and will try Baby Oil for my next batch)
Optional: Crushed chalk or oil-based food coloring if you don’t want white sand
