Day 140 – Moon Sand


This was a really fun summertime activity for the little man. We don’t have a sandbox, but he loves the beach. This is a great way to bring some of the beach home without having to invest in a sandbox.


8 cups of flour
1 cup of baby oil


Combine the flour and baby oil in a large tray or container. I used a large bowl, but I would recommend something with a lid if you plan on storing it and reusing it.

The sand is really soft as you would imagine, and it packs really well so you can still make sandcastles with it.

The little man had a great time with this. He’s a dumper, so there wasn’t much left at the end of the day and my patio will be white for days. At least he had fun!

Unknown – I think this was uploaded by a Pinterest user, but I was unable to find the origin.

    • I’m not sure that it’s edible. I’ve heard that it’s not a good idea to eat flour that hasn’t been cooked though I’m not really sure why. And I’m not sure about the baby oil.

  4. This is cloud dough and you can use same recipe but olive oil instead and its edible and baby safe
