moon sand

Recently, Ethan and I have discovered moon sand. It takes about four seconds to make, stores beautifully in an old pasta sauce jar and provides Ethan with seemingly endless sensory fun. I whipped up a quick batch of this when we were still housebound courtesy of the Double Ear Infection Of Doom and Ethan happily sat playing, molding, sculpting and inevitably crumbling the moon sand. I was surprised at how cool the moon sand was based on the fact it's comprised of two ingredients, but it had the coolest texture. It felt crumbly and grainy like sand, but was able to be sculpted and molded into shapes.

Here's how to make your own moon sand:

Add four cups of flour in a bin or pan of your choice.

Add 3/4c oil to the flour and mix it together with your hands. Knead it until it's all combined.

And just like that -- moon sand.

I added some cookie cutters, scoops and cups to the mix for Ethan to be able explore the moon sand.

Ethan's favorite thing to do was make things -- and then crumble them back again. We even made a snowman. Ethan thought this was super cool.

  3. That looks great! I tried a version a few months ago that used baby oil and had an allergic reaction to it (ugh) so I have since stayed away - what kind of oil did you use??

      We used canola oil! I happened to have a big jug of it in the pantry and it worked just fine!

  10. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    tags:Bolsos Michael Kors Rebajas,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors El Corte Ingles

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    tags:Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Michael Kors Örhängen

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
