How to make Moon Sand

                                   Have you ever played with Moon Sand? 

Giggles got a package of the expensive store bought stuff as a treat from her grandmother and was a little taken a back when her little sister wanted to squish her fingers in it too so, I went hunting and found this  (super duper ridiculously easy) homemade kind!  
It really is easy (and cheap!) All you need is 4 cups of flour and 1/2 C of baby oil.

Mix together with your hands.
It’s powdery soft to the touch and blends really well.  

My kids love play dough, but Moon Sand is a totally different level of obsession.

Be forewarned…home made moon sand is messy and not for the faint of heart.
You will have powdery white moon sand all over the table, the floor, their clothes and yourself But what child doesn’t love messy play?

And an added bonus she happily played for over an hour allowing me some time for myself!
Have you found a homemade craft that works with your toddler?
