The mixing and squishing in this project helps kids learn about different textures and can help fine tune hand-eye coordination. This craft idea will undoubtedly become one of your child’s favorites.

HOWLING AT THE MOON SAND RECIPE
• 8 c. Flour
• 1 c. Vegetable Oil or thicker Carrier Oil
• 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix with your hands until well combined. When the sand starts to clump or cling together, you have achieved the correct consistency. If your Moon Sand is too wet, add a bit more flour. Too dry, just add a little more Oil.
You can also add Natural Food Coloring to the mixture, a few drops at a time, until you achieve the colors you desire.
Store in an air-tight container between play sessions, and always check your Sand before play sessions for any breakdown.
