How To Make Magic Sand

The boys love doing crafts and just about any kind of hands on activities, so the other day when we had nothing to do  I decided we would have a little sensory fun. I needed to do something with ingredients we had on hand and this magic sand is perfect! It only uses 2 ingredients that I would guess everyone has around their house.

How to make magic sand

supplies needed

  • flour
  • vegetable oil
  • measuring cup
  • mixing spoon
  • mixing bowl

Magic sand is made with just flour and vegetable oil, you should use about a 1:8 ratio with 1 cup of oil to 8 cups of flour.

We started with 1/8 of a cup of oil and 1 cup of flour and just added more until it got to the texture we wanted.

The boys loved mixing the sand with their hands.

It was fun to make shapes with the sand
