Moon Dough!

There are lots of recipes out there for MOON DOUGH or, as some like to call it, "cloud dough." This recipe is one of our favorites! It's one of the easiest things to make, consisting of only 2 ingredients, and, if stored properly, it will practically keep forever! The consistency of MOON DOUGH is amazing...similar to sand it holds its shape when molded, though at the same time it easily crumbles back into its silky powder form. I have to warn you, it does make a mess...but a glorious, entertain-the-kids-for-an-hour mess! Just put a blanket down on your kitchen floor first or, when the weather is nice, take MOON DOUGH outside! 

1 cup baby oil
4 cups flour

Simply put the baby oil and the flour into a large bowl or plastic container. Using a whisk, spoon or your hands, mix the ingredients together. Easy peasy!!! 

Fun tools for the kids to play with are spoons, forks, small measuring cups or bowls, a muffin tin, sand castle molds, plastic jewels, straws...

L enjoys building castles, searching for "treasures," making pretend cakes, and pretending her lil fairies and dinosaurs are walking on the moon. So much fun!!!

To store MOON DOUGH just put it in an air-tight container...any plastic container with a lid should work just fine...and keep it in a cool, dry place. Enjoy!!!
