DIY Play Sand for Sensory Trays

It's Sunday evening, I just came home from climbing and put E. to sleep. So what now? Hm... I finally have some time to prepare some play sand for tomorrow.

I wanted to make something brown, to resemble dirt to go well with the forest animals. But I didn't want to use food colouring. The usual recipe for play sand is 1 parts oil and 8 parts flour. But I used instead flour, carob powder, and a bit of cinnamon for the smell. So I just divided the amount of flour between these.

I made the play sand using:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups carob powder
  • 1 spoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cups oil (rapeseed and avocado oil, but any oil will do)
Tomorrow I'll show it to E. and I really hope she'll like it. Now I'm off to bed...I've got cinnamon tea and a good book waiting for me.

If you give this recipe a try, let me know what you think. :)
