Moonsand…

January 20, 2013

We have made our own Moonsand!

Those without Small people will be unimpressed by this, as would I have been until about a week ago, having never played with the stuff before.

But it’s brilliant!

And cheap!

And very easy to make.

Hurrah!

This is what you need:

  • 8 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup baby oil
  • 1 over-excited 4 year old (optional)
  • Food colouring and copious amounts of glitter (I would like to say optional, but it your Smalls are anything like mine, then it’s not really…)

This is what you do:

  • Measure it all out and mix it up! (Told you it was easy….)

  • We tried adding food colouring but only had the pastes so it didn’t work very well. See the red lumpy bits….
  • You must can add glitter

  • Allow Small people to play…

Don't ask about the hat....

This stuff is awesome! It kept them both amused, while I was cooking tea, for about an hour!!

The only downside is the slight ‘ghostly’ appearance your Smalls might develop, and the inevitable tidying up….
