*I changed the order of the original directions because it was poorly put together. Originally it mixed water and cornstarch together first. Tell me what happens when you mix those two together..Ya... DUH!
Recipe for homemade moon sand
(I cut the recipe down to 1/3)
6 cups of play sand (I got a 50lb bag from Home Depot for $4.99, you can also buy colored sand in smaller amounts for less at a pet store)
3 cups of cornstarch
1 1/2 cups of cold water
Step one: Mix the Sand and cornstarch together thoroughly. To make it "mess free" put in a gallon ziplock to mix it rather than a bowl.
Step two: Mix in the water either in the bowl or the bag. Mix completely.
Step three: Play with it!**TO MAKE QUICKSAND add about 1/2-1 cup of water to mixture
