Moon Sand

We are doing a theme about space right now, so we pretended that we took a little trip to the moon.  While we were there we found some moon sand to bring back to earth with us.  Just in case you aren’t able to go all the way to the moon, here is how you make some moon sand right at home 😉

All you need is sand, cornstarch and water.
(Hunter had been sick all week or I would have bought some regular colored sand.  Since he wasn’t feeling up to going out to the store to get sand I just used what we had here- and it just so happened to be blue.)

Mix together:
3 cups of sand
1 1/2 cups of cornstarch
3/4 cups of water

Stir it all up

Finished moon sand.  I really like how the moon sand feels.  I don’t like how regular sand feels, but this is different and not as messy as regular sand.  I still kept it outside, of course.
