MOON SAND: the coolest play material ever! A must try! (Easy recipe) #moonsand #moonsandrecipe #pumpkinmoonsand #howtomakemoonsand
If your kids love slime & play dough then they will love MOON SAND!
Moon sand is unlike any other play material that we have tried.  It acts like slime but can be molded, and it's sand!  It is SO COOL you really must try it for yourself.

With Fall in full swing we decided to try making pumpkin moon sand today!  The results were just too fun!  Read on for the easy recipe!

Pumpkin Moon Sand Recipe 


Method

  • Begin by mixing the play sandpumpkin spice & the corn starch in a large sensory bin or container.
  • Add the desired amount of powdered paint or food coloring at this time. (if color is desired)
  • Then, slowly begin to add water to the bin and mix. 
  • Slowly add more water & mix until the desired consistency is reached.

  • You can use more or less water to create different consistencies.  More water will give you a slimier sand, and less water will give you more of a playdough-like sand. (Note: We started with one cup of water and added more as we played.)
  • Once everything is good and mixed play can begin!

My girls were so excited and couldn't wait to jump in & play!

They were enamored by the texture and movement of the sand and enjoyed simply exploring it for a bit.

They quickly moved on to making oozing pumpkins.

They were tickled by the fact that the moon sand smelled just like pumpkin pie, too!  I eventually gave them scoopers, buckets, and kitchen gadgets to extend their play.  I also gave Rosie a few pie pans, and she had a blast making pumpkin pies.

The girls played & played until eventually, we tucked our homemade moon sand away for another day.

Storage:  Leave the moon sand in an uncovered bin.  It will dry out, but that's ok.  Once the sand is dry it may be stored in a zip-seal bag or closed container between play times.  Next time you are ready to play simply add water again until you have the desired consistency. (Note- Covering the container will cause the sand to grow mold)
