As summer quickly approaches, the kids will be home more often, and you’ll need more activities and crafts for kids to do as you spend time with them. Kids are full of energy and life, and they’re bound to enjoy activities as long as they’re spending time with you. But doing the same things day after day can get boring and repetitive, and there may not seem to be anything new under the sun.
If you want to spend time with your kids while enjoying an activity that’s new and exciting for both you and them, there’s no better time to try Moon Sand.
Moon Sand is one of the easiest and most popular crafts for kids, and will help keep them entertained for hours while building and creating fantastic structures or just enjoying the texture between their little fingers!
Moon Sand is like sand, but it’s denser and far easier to make to stay compact.
What you’ll need:
- 8 cups of flour (I used all-purpose flour)
- 1 cup of baby oil or vegetable oil
- few drops of food coloring (optional)
- If gluten-free: use corn flour or any gluten-free flour, to replace regular flour
You can make a plethora of different structures and objects with moon sand, like giant sandcastles which are guaranteed to stand until you tear them down, or different shapes of all different sizes.
You can even use the sand to make fun arts and crafts like bracelets and necklaces for your kids to play with. Moon Sand is a great way to try something new and exciting every day. Like three-dimensional chalk, you can let your imagination run wild while you spend quality time with your kids. For those long, lazy summer days, you need Moon Sand. It’s affordable and can be found in a variety of stores and online retailers. Let your kids run wild with the sand that doesn’t stick to your clothes or leave behind an unmanageable mess. Try Moon Sand today and unleash your inner kid.
Crafts for kids are good ways for you and your kids to bond and have fun during those boring days with no plans of what to do. Snap a pic or video of the moon sand your family made and send it to us, we love to see when our community is having fun!
