After our much anticipated trip to Prehistoric World in Ontario Canada, Alex has been very interested in playing with his dinosaurs. I decided to make him a playscape/sensory box for his dinosaurs.
The second box I made I decided to make some DIY Moon Sand. I found the recipe I loosely followed on Pinterest, the original post was here.
My Moon Sand Recipe
6 cups of sand
3 cups of corn starch
1 and a half cups of water (more or less for desired consistency)
Mix all ingredients thoroughly and play.
The homemade moon sand is very close to the store bought moons sands consistency and a lot cheaper. I think it would be identical if I had finer sand. When the sand seems to dry out, you can add a little bit more water and it should be restored.
Once I made the Moon Sand, I added some shells we collected from the local beaches, small blue sea glass, some red gems, a small shovel, a couple small sand molds and a sea turtle and that completed our Beach Sensory Bin.
