Homemade Moon Sand




Intro: Homemade Moon Sand

This is a quick and easy homemade moon sand recipe, enjoy!!!:):):) In this instructable I made dirt cheap moon sand!! Made simply out of sand, corn starch , and water!!! I got the idea a couple of days ago when I was playing with real moon sand!! That's when I thought, is there a cheaper way to make this stuff. So I fiddled around with some stuff and I got my great recipe!! My plan stayed the same throughout the whole thing!! I made this amazing moon sand in my basement. When I was a kid I used to always play with moon sand cause it was fun. I wanted to make moon sand in a cheap way without having to buy the expensive stuff so that my younger siblings can play with it!!:) My biggest challenge I came across was getting the right consistency of the moon sand. If I were to make the moon sand again I would use more food coloring so that my moon sand has a better and brighter color!!:):)

Step 1: Gather Materials

These are the following materials you will need to make this amazing moon sand: 1 cup of sand 1/2 cup of corn starch 1/4 cup of water Opt. Food coloring big bowl

Step 2: Step 2

Put your 1/4 cup of water into the bowl and add food coloring if you would like. Mix in all of the corn starch and stir well.

Step 3: Step 3

Slowly pour the cup of sand into the bowl with water and corn starch in it. Mix till everything is mixed well. If your moon sand seems runny just add a little more sand. And if it seems really dry just add a tiny bit of water!!

Step 4: Step 4

When you are done playing with your moon sand place it all in an air-tight container. When you are ready to reuse it just add a few teaspoons of water to it and you are ready to use again. Please follow and favorite, thanks!!:)
