Here is a great idea for little ones. Especially if you live in an apartment like me and don’t have a yard and/or a real sandbox. It’s great for indoor play during the winter, too!
All you need is all-purpose flour, vegetable (or corn, baby or canola) oil and a bin to store it in.
First, you will want to mix 4 cups flour with 1/2 cup oil. That is actually a two batches pictured above, mixed one batch at a time.
Once it is is all incorporated, put mixture in a shallow bin and have fun! Add toys and small containers and spoons for sand-play. This “sand” is the perfect texture for play. You can use containers to mold it, but it crumbles with light pressure–just like real sand. Just make sure to put a towel underneath to control messes! When done, store away until next time!
