If you aren’t on Pinterest, I highly recommend it. My favorite part of Pinterest is that I can pin activities to do with my boys and on a day we get bored, I just pull up one of the activities and off we go :). Seriously, it’s awesome!
One of our most recent activities discovered on Pinterest was moon sand. We went outside with a large casserole dish and started mixing away…I loved the texture and my 5 year old played in the moon sand for ages, just feeling it squish through his fingers…
All you need is 4 cups of sand (we had a bunch left over from our dinosaur fossils), 2 cups of corn starch and 1 cup of water. Mix it all together and let the discovery begin. I loved the texture…it feels like a liquid at first but if you let it sit it seems more solid. If it starts to dry out, just add a little bit more water.
What have you made with your kids recently?
