I found this recipe for moon dough/cloud dough on Pinterest! It peaked my interest so we spent an afternoon playing in it.  It's really easy to make and both of my kids had a ball playing in the stuff. This could also be a great activity one day on Spring Break!
What you need:
  • 8-16 cups of flour
  • 1-2 cups of baby oil
  • plastic bin
  • toys!
 What you do:

Dump the flour in your plastic bin. I used 16 cups for my 2 little ones and it was the perfect amount for 2. You could double that or triple that based on how many kids you are entertaining.

Dump the baby oil in with the flour.

Stir around. I used a wooden spoon from my kitchen.

Add in toys and watch them enjoy!

Some call it moon dough, some call it moon sand. I think it's somewhere in the middle, because you can mold it into different shapes, but maintains its sand feel and texture. :)
