Moon Sand Recipe With Vegetable Oil

Easy to make moonsand playdough recipe even your child can do it. Fun and easy to make. via @gallykidsIf you’re in a hurry and just want to do a quick activity with  your child, then do this moon sand recipe with vegetable oil.

It’s quick to make, there’s no cooking involved and you’re bound to have all the needed ingredients in your kitchen.

There are two different recipes here.

As you can see from the title, the magic ingredient is vegetable oil. However, one of the recipes uses only flour while the other recipe uses corn starch and corn meal.

As always, glitter is optional – They just make life a little bit more fun, don’t you think?

Recipe 1: Homemade Moon Sand With Flour and Oil

Moon sand recipe with flour and oil. Just like the real thing recipe. via @gallykids

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • optional: peppermint essence
  • optional: glitter
  • optional: food coloring

Instructions:

  1. In a big bowl, pour the 5 cups of flour.
  2. Add in all the vegetable oil. Optional: Add the peppermint essence
  3. Mix well using your hand (much more fun that way)
  4. If you want to use food coloring or glitter, add them now.
  5. Knead the coloring in.
  6. That’s it! The playdough is now ready for play.

Note: My son didn’t care too much for the smell of this recipe, that’s why I added the peppermint.

Recipe 2: DIY Moon Sand Recipe With Corn Starch

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups corn starch
  • 2 cups corn meal
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • optional: glitter
  • optional: food coloring

Instructions:

  1. In a big bowl, pour in both the corn starch and corn meal
  2. Add the vegetable oil.
  3. Knead well until the oil is thoroughly incorporated
  4. Add glitter, if desired.
  5. Time to play

Observations:

Of these two recipes, I like recipe 1 more. Not only does it require ingredients that are readily available, but it also retains its properties in storage.

The second one works well right after mixing the ingredients. However, it doesn’t store very well. It becomes sweaty(!) and is no longer very easy to play with after a couple of months.
