There are many versions of our Magic Sand out there. Some call it Cloud Dough, others call it Soft Sand others Moon Sand…
We call it MAGIC SAND.
…because like magic, there was quiet in the house!
We played for hours – both of us.
It is so soft, I loved it… but that’s not quite the point… Emma loved it too!
How to make Magic Sand?
2 Ingredients: Flour and Oil
1 cup baby oil (we used lavender scented oil)
8 cups of flour
Add the oil and flour to a bowl and mix well!
I made half the quantity to start but quickly made more!
I also used lavender scented baby oil… mmmmmmmmm.
We got out some instruments – to make and pat and push and dig and scoop and cut and fill…
Then we added the magic!!
The texture is soft and moldable, it smells great.
Make some, trust me!
