For "moon sand", mix 9 cups play sand (really fine sand you can find at Wal-Mart). Add 3 cups cornstarch and 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups water. Start with 2 1/4 cup and continue adding water until you have the desired consistency. Mix well. Cover and store in an airtight container. You may need to add a few tablespoons of water if it needs to be moistened.

What is moon sand?
By Roberta S.
Moon sand is something you can buy at toy stores that kids can play with. It's kind of a cross between Playdough and sand.
The moon sand recipe sounds great, but I wish to know what to do with it!

It's something that kids can play with. Kind of like playing with sand it a sandbox but you can sculpt with it a bit as well. They sell it at toy stores.
