Making recipes, diy tutorials and fun videos of how to make playdough, how to make a sensory bag and how to make cloud dough like this recipe, is one of my favorite things to do!
It’s really fun seeing my girls play with an activity I made at home for them using household ingredients.

I set out a bowl on the table.
Then, I added 2 cups of flour into the bowl.
I then added ⅓ or ¼ of regular cooking/olive oil integrated with 1 tsp of water based food coloring into the mix.

Mix it up.
And, your moon dough is ready to go!

Is this recipe edible moon sand?
It is not!
Flour contains certain bacteria which prevents it from being an edible recipe.
However it can be used for play and if you’d like to add it in the oven for a couple of minutes to kill any bacteria, that is a-okay!
Please always supervise.
