Carter's therapy has been fun- his vision specialist from Pip School of the Deaf and Blind brought moon sand one day for him to play with. It took several tries but he finally loved it and even put some in his mouth. It was fun to see him play with it especially since it came off easily. I found the recipe online for moms that want to try it for some sensory play:
9 cups Flour
1 1/4 cup baby oil
Variation: To make colored Moon Sand
We added 1/8 of a cup of Powdered Tempera Paint to the above recipe split into three so per 3 cups flour add 1/8 cup powdered tempera mix well and then add baby oil.
Variation 2: Make it Smelly
Add 1/8 of a cup of cocoa powder to make it smell chocolatey! Or add some Food flavoring extracts like banana, raspberry, strawberry etc. What ever you have! Or you can add koolaid! I add 2 to 3 packs per 1/3 of this recipe so you can create three different colors/ scents with one batch just split into thirds.
Directions:Mix and enjoy!
