Moon Sand Activity and Learning more About Space

06

Apr

We whipped up some moon sand for this week & it was not only easy to make (2 ingredients!) but it was also a great new sensory experience for Hudson. Hudson has been very curious about the moon from learning about the solar system in his bedtime books. I love the conversations we had together while he dug his hands in. When we pair play with books/learning it brings many connections together in developing brains. I mean, I remember & recall vividly fun activities from my childhood! Heads up though— it was messy. I didn’t mind the mess personally ( I have a high powered cordless vacuum that may as well be surgically attached to my hand because that thing makes multiple daily rounds in our home) but if you know a mess will bring on stress then you might wanna take it outside.

Here is the simple recipe for

Moon Sand


+ 8 cups Flour
+ 1 cup of baby oil (or melted coconut oil)
+ Jar for storage (you can store it just like you would with play dough & reuse!)

Mix it all up! We used our kitchen aid with the dough attachment. It was so easy! The sand should mold together when you grasp it in your hand yet also crumble easily. Pull out books that feature the moon to discuss— the ones we used were perfect to use with Huddy & gave lots of insight with beautiful illustrations. We have several moon books & it might be my personal favorite. I’ll share some of our favorites below.

Book of the Moon | Lift-the-Flap: What is the Moon? | On the Moon Little Board Book | Fold-Out Solar System | The Extraordinary Life of Neil Armstrong | Look Inside Space | 100 Things to Know About Space | Wipe-Clean Space Activities
