DIY Moon Sand

We can’t always go to the beach, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still play in the sand. DIY Moon Sand lets you bring the sand fun indoors!

What you’ll need:

  • 8 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of oil (baby oil preferred)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small cups, measuring spoons, and other tools to mold your sand with


Grab your mixing bowl and mix the flour and oil together until the oil is incorporated into the flour.

Get building! Experiment with shapes and forms.  You can also add more baby oil down the road to freshen your moon sand for round two!

This project was inspired by an activity here.
