So yesterday morning as it was dry and warm we went outside to make some moon sand. I didn't really want to leave the house to go to the shops today so I made do with what I had which was just under half a box of cornflour and then I mixed it with about a quarter of a bottle of baby oil. The smell was lovely. The texture was crumbly and soft.
I got out some silicone cupcake cases, some cups, small pots and some spoons. I also put a pot of glitter on the tray to add another colour.
I put the tray in the garden for the children to explore. Millie was far more interested than Chester, but I think this was because he was busy playing dens in his tent!
All in all it was pretty successful, next time I will use a full box of cornflour as I think they would've prefered to have more to play with. I love that we had a theme so I will carry that on next time we decide to make moon sand!
Have you ever made moon sand before? What's your kids favourite way to play with it?
