Arts and Crafts Corner - Homemade 'Moon Sand'

May has been unseasonably miserable, with a ridiculous amount of rain, so when you can't even guarantee a dry day this summer, what do you do with the kids?

You make 'Moon Sand'!

'Moon Sand' is a mouldable play sand, think wet sand at the beach, that doesn't dry out and is always re-mouldable.

The children can help you make this, it only requires 2 ingredients, which most people will already have available to them in their homes right now!


5 cups of Plain/All Purpose Flour
1 cup of Baby Oil


Bung it all in a bowl and mix until it forms a silky bread crumb like mixture.

Couldn't be simpler, right?

Now have fun building and moulding with your children!


  1. That is a great product. Thanks. Does it keep after the event then ?

    1. Hi Kara,

      Yes, it does! Store in a tupperware container :)
