Moon sand is really easy to whip up and makes for some fabulous sensory play.  It has a fun texture different from any of the other play recipes we have made.  Today, we created a new moon sand recipe perfect for Fall.

In a sensory bin or similar container combine all ingredients and mix well.  We used homemade powdered paint to color our sand, but you can also use watercolors or powdered tempera.  We started with one cup of water and added more until we had the desired consistency.  Really, it depends on what consistency you prefer your moon sand to be.  We like it a bit more moist

Pumpkin Moon Sand Play Recipe Perfect for Fall

Homemade Pumpkin Moon Sand Recipe- this moon sand has such a fun texture and is perfect for Fall. Smells just like pumpkin pie!

Moon sand has a very unique and fun texture. It is sand-like but soft and squishy.  It can be molded and holds it's shape really well but also has a bit of an ooze to it.  It is really hard to describe and so fun you really must try it for yourself



Give kids scoopers, buckets, and kitchen gadgets so they can play and explore.  I gave Rosie a few pie pans and she had a blast making pumpkin pies


This moon sand is perfect for Fall and really does smell just like pumpkin pie!

Storage:  Leave the moon sand in an uncovered bin.  It will dry out, but that's ok.  Next time you are ready to play simply add more water until you have the desired consistency.  (Note- Covering the container will cause the sand to grow mold)
