Today's activity is an outdoor, messy one! We made some play "sand" out of a few ingredients and added some dinosaurs and a wash bin for very messy, very fun time!
All you will need to make the "sand" is:
4 cups of flour
1/2 vegetable or sunflower oil
food coloring (optional) + a table spoon more of oil if you want to color
Measure out your 4 cups flour and mix in 1/2 cup oil and mix with spoon or hands until blended! You can add more oil for a squishier texture!
If you want to color the "sand" mix desired food coloring with a table spoon of oil , mix up and add to flour. You will have to remix.
We also added some plastic dinosaurs, trees, a few digging utensils and a wash bin with a strainer!
We love keeping the mess contained in a mini kiddie pool but you can set up however you want!
Embrace the mess and enjoy!
