How to Make 2 ingredient moon sand


Bake Flour.

Pre-heat your oven to 350°F. While it’s preheating, spread the flour out on baking sheet… 8 cups fits perfectly on a half-sheet cake pan.


Combine Flour and Oil.

Put all 8 cups of the flour you baked into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 cup of vegetable oil and use a dough blender to combine the mixture. 


Check the Consistency.

When everything is completely and evenly incorporated, the sand should hold its form when you squeeze it, and easily break back up into sand.


Put Moon Sand Into Tub.

When you have a good consistency, transfer the moon sand mixture to a large container, tub or sand table.
