8 Cups flour: I ended up using a little more than one 2 lb bag from the dollar tree.
1 1/2-2 cups baby oil: Pour in one cup and stir, add more while stirring until you get the consistency you want.
Large plastic container with lid: The lid is really important because you can save the moon sand and keep using it!
Food coloring: This is something I added from the original recipe, I added several drops of food coloring and mixed until I got the color I wanted- I'm pretty sure this was Isabella's favorite part.
|This recipe uses A LOT of flour!|
|We added orange food coloring, it's hard to see here but it looks pretty cool.|

Well that's our fun and very simple activity for the day, it literally took us maybe five minutes to make, and that was because we had to measure out all the flour. It was so cool to do with Isabella, and she loved it! I also really like that we can put the lid on the container and we can use it over and over again! If I did it again I would choose a slightly larger container because this one tends to spill as we dig which kind of sucks. I think I'm going to go through her toys and find all those small trinkets kids get in goodie bags from birthdays and put them in the moon sand so we can do a sensory look and find activity!
