make your own moon sand: the easiest DIY

I have a happy DIY to share today! This will give your kids hours of play time and is great especially for sensory play:
Make your own moon sand!
Here's what you need:
8 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of vegetable oil
8 drops essential oil
Add your essential oil to your vegetable oil. I love using Peace & Calming, Orange, Lavender, or Gentle Baby to promote all kinds of happy, chill vibes for my little ones.
Add your flour to a plastic bin. Bonus if it has a lid to store for later use! Then just pour the oil over the flour and mix well with your hands. Mixing might take a few minutes, and then you're done! You have moon sand that will last for ages! Add food coloring if you want to make it even more fun!
Grab some fun accessories - cups, cookie cutters, baking molds, measuring spoons... and let your kids go to town! I don't know about you, but I am looking for creative ways to scale down the screen time during this "break", and this simple DIY is such an easy answer to keeping little hands busy and entertained.

We made this one morning and my kids played for hours - from my four year old to my ten year olds, they couldn't get enough!

Happy making, friends!
