moonsand

gather up
- 4 cups of play sand
- 2 cups of corn flour
- 1 cup of water

optional
- glitter
- some essential oils
 

Be prepared for things to get messy, aprons on everyone. Mix all the 'ingredients' together in a big mixing bowl using a spoon or little hands. Add some Chamomile essential oil to make it smell nice with the added bonus of calming the kids (and Mamma!). Provide some cookie cutters for making shapes, add glitter for a sparkly effect. After play seal your Moonsand in a air tight container to use another day.

Mamma's lil' tip: if this is too messy for you, try Kinetic Sand for ready made sandy fun.

This is a gloopy alternative to regular sand pit play and a good playdate activity. Give some Moonsand to a friend to take home.
