Moon sand - Creative recipes - Educatall

Moon sand


  • 6 cups of sand (for sandboxes)
  • 3 cups of cornstarch
  • 1 ½ cups of cold water
  • 1 large tub


  1. Combine water and cornstarch and mix vigorously. After a few minutes, the mixture will be smooth.
  2. Add the sand (1 cup at a time) to the mixture and mix well using your hands so the sand soaks up the mixture.
  3. Once this is done, you are ready to play with the dough! ☺ Enjoy making shapes and structures of all kinds.
  4. Store in an airtight container. When you want to use it again, simply add 3 to 4 spoonfuls of water and mix. The dough will provide many hours of fun!

***The texture will resemble commercial “Moon Sand” but will cost much less.
