Ocean Moon Sand

One of my favorite things to make for children definitely has to be sensory bins. Not only does it give kids something fun to play with, but sensory bins are so helpful for your child’s development.


  • 2 Cups Flour

  • 1 Tsp Blue Candy Food Coloring (You can also use Powdered Tempera Paint)

  • ¼ cup Melted Coconut Oil

  • Assorted fish/seashells

  • Bowl

  • Spoon

Note: Do this activity outside where you don’t mind a mess or place a plastic sheet down underneath for easy clean up.


  • Step 1: Add 2 cups of flour to a large bowl.

  • Step 2: Mix ¼ melted coconut oil and 1 tsp of blue candy food coloring in a small bowl. (Add more food coloring to achieve desired color)

  • Step 3: Add the colored oil to the flour and stir to combine.

  • Step 4: Knead the moon sand with your hands to fully distribute the colored oil in the flour. (You could always ask your kid to help out in the process. Kids like to be a helper! )

  • Step 5: Place the moon sand in a large plastic storage bin and add in your seashells and fish!
