DIY Moon sand

17 Aug

This is the easiest DIY tactile play you could ever make that is different from shaving cream and rice/noodle bins! All you need: flour and baby oil. That’s it! Mix the two together until you reach the consistency you like the best! Feels very similar to moon sand and if you put it in a container with a lid, it stays good for several weeks! Cheap, quick, and easy! I even made some in ziplock bags to send home with a few kids. Using some old tile spacers, I threw this activity together to work on orienting crosses and Xs, improve tactile exploration and acceptance, improve attention to task and following directions (for example, I would ask my client to place it on a “red X,” etc.), grasping, work on counting and color identification, etc.! We had fun! The ideas are endless with how to use this “moon sand” stuff. What have you don’t with it?!
