DIY for Kids: Make Your Own Moon Sand

DIY for Kids: Make Your Own Moon Sand

Have fun making this simple, easy to clean up sand that will entertain little ones all day long.


With warmer weather on the horizon, you and your little ones may be craving a beach day. Honestly, who doesn’t love building sand castles and getting just a little bit messy? For those days when the weather isn’t quite cooperating (because we all know the temperature can change in a New York minute), this craft brings the beach to you. This moon sand is easy to shape, easy to clean up, and even easier to have fun with!

It’s messy to make but easy to clean. It’s part soap after all! It won’t store long. Enjoy it for a day, then throw it away!

 

Maker Checklist

  • Big bag of baking soda
  • A couple tins of baking powder
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Measuring cups
  • Mixing bowl and spoon
  • Food coloring (optional)

 

Instructions

1.  Combine 2 parts baking soda and 1 part baking powder in a large mixing bowl. We used 2 cups of baking soda and 1 cup of baking powder, but you can use whatever measurement you have on hand, as long as you’re consistent in ratio!



2.  Now add 1 part (for us, 1 cup) of dish soap and stir well. You can start with a spoon, but as it combines, it’s more fun to use your hands.

3.  Color with food coloring (optional) and play!
