Duration: 30 to 45 mins
Ask child to help with making the moon sand
Let child chose what color s/he would like. Can always make more than one color
This may get a bit messy, but it is a lot of fun!
medium / large bowl
Quart-sized mason jar (or any glass jar) with a lid
4 cups cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1 cup coconut oil or baby oil
food coloring or powdered fruits and veggies like beetroot powder or spirulina
Add arrowroot powder or cornstarch to a medium/large bowl.
If you’re using food coloring, now is the time to add in a table spoon of coconut oil. add a teaspoon.
The dye won’t fully mix with the oil, whisk with a fork to help the color distribute more evenly,
Once you combine the oil with the flour the dye will mix in.
Add the coconut oil to the cornstarch/arrowroot powder and mix everything together.
Finished up with our fingers.
When the moon sand is fully mixed the color was still pretty light. can add more food coloring
