Moon Play! Just add flour, baby oil and glitter! We did this 2 weeks in a row and the kids loved it! Just add baby oil to flour (a 1 to 8 ratio), glitter and small world space figures! The kids were able to mould the moon dust, using their hands and containers- it’s a great way to explore and talk about the universe.
