I’m Always looking for something fun and on the the less messy side for my boys to do. It can be a challenge since they are ages 1 and 5, but this moldable sand was a hit with both of them! It was also super easy to make which I love. I had all the ingredients in my cupboard already.
It can also be kept in a container with lid for play for days to come! The texture was nice it wasn’t sticky or messy. It came right of your hands by simply rubbing then together. It was also fun because the consistency was great for molding into shapes, cutting with cookie cutters, and measuring cups. I am sure there are endless toys you can add to the sand to make it more interesting for your little one. Some ideas plastic bugs or animals, beads, any play dough toys, or cooking utensils.
- 5 cups of sand
- 1 cup corn starch
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup baby oil (add more based on your preference)
