Baby wipes are an essential tool in a mom’s diaper bag. They make diaper changes so much easier, but help clean messy hands and faces, too. A mom’s need for baby wipes doesn’t cease once the diaper days are long gone, however. They’re incredibly useful around the house, and especially with older kids at craft time.
We all want what’s best for our kids, though, whether they’re young or older. And so it’s important to make sure that what we have on hand for their hands, face, and skin is safe. That includes our baby wipes. Available at Walgreens, WaterWipes is a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. Both durable and effective without containing any of the potentially harmful chemicals that may be found in other baby wipes, WaterWipes proves a safer, natural option for your little one. Or older one, whatever the case may be.
On my latest trip to Walgreens, I made sure to grab 2 packs of WaterWipes. One pack is sure to be useful around the house while the other was to clean up after our crafting adventures. Adventures to the moon, possibly, when you put together this fun, easy recipe for DIY Glitter Moon Sand!
My kids loving playing with kinetic sand. It can get expensive buying new batches once they dry up, however. It’s so easy to make our own DIY Glitter Moon Sand, though, with just flour and baby oil. With glitter added in for sparkle!
In a very large container, we used an old Halloween candy bowl, simply mix 8 cups of flour with 1 cup of baby oil. Add glitter. We used about 1 tbsp each green, blue, and purple glitter.
Mix it all around with your hands. This is where the WaterWipes begin to come in handy.
Once it’s all mixed, begin building and playing! My kids like to use fun things like cups to pack sand in and mold into shape, straws, old toys, and plastic cutlery. They also like to see what shapes they can form with their hands, too.
And, speaking of hands, a pack of WaterWipes nearby makes cleanup a breeze!
Not only for hands, though, but the table, too. This is messy play, but it’s really fun!
DIY Glitter Moon Sand
- 8 cups flour
- 1 cup baby oil
- at least 1 tbsp each blue, green, purple glitter
Combine flour with baby oil. This DIY Glitter Moon Sand really goes together by feel, so if it doesn’t come together enough, then add more oil. The same goes with the glitter. If it’s not sparkly enough, add more.
