Marvelous moon sand. Moon sand provides a soothing sensory experience and will stretch a child’s imagination. Moulding, sifting and scooping the sand is also great for developing hand and arm muscles.

- 1 cup of baby oil (alternatively use vegetable oil)
- Large mixing bowl
- Large tray or bin
- Toys, letters or shapes (optional)
- Combine the flour and oil in the mixing bowl.
- Mix with a spatula until saturation. Add more flour or oil as needed to achieve desired consistency.
