Make the Perfect Moon Sand
Edited by Doug Collins, Eng, Inukshuk
I would like to thank Brooke from "What's Up Moms", for the awesome video on how to make a DIY Moon Sand " perfect recipe". I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
Since Lincoln started the preschool his level of curiosity in wanting to be involved in things around the house is sky rocket.
So I 've been trying to find a class in DIY's that he can actually participate in.
Our current favorite is this DIY cloud Dough or Moon Sand.
It's so fun to make and even, more fun to play with.
I'm Brooke and I am passion about making beautiful things for my family on a budget.
here is what you're going to need to get started.
Food coloring or soap coloring is optional.
First, we're going to pour one cup of corn starch into our mixing bowl.
Next, we're going to add about an eighth of a cup of liquid detergent.
Now, this ingredient was not in the list of recipes that I read, but I found that it makes the Dough a lot less sticky.
Finally, Lincoln's favorite part, we 're going to add the shaving cream.
It's about one to one ratio with the corn starch, but the shaving cream is really hard to measure in a cup, so I just going to eyeball it.
Now, we're ready to mix our ingredients.
Continue whisking until it gets denser and is almost the texture of sand.
Now it would be a good time to add your coloring of you want a colored Dough, but I love the icy blue tent the detergent creates, so I am going to leave mine like this.
Once you can pick it up and form a solid that doesn't crumble apart, your Dough is complete.
I just love the texture of this, it's not quite like play dough and it's not quite sand.
I recommend storing them in an airtight container so it doesn't dry out.
This patch is ready for play time.
I like to put them in one of these sentry bins so it doesn't make a mess.
But you can also just play with it right on the table.
You can even spread it up in a smaller portion, and make a rainbow dough.
It also makes a really cute party gift if you combine it with some excavation tools and treasures to bury.
Alright, guys I hope you give this a try, I'm sure you will have so much fun.
Tell me in the comments below if there is any DIY that you want to see. Thanks so much for watching and I'll see you next Friday. Bye guys.
