If you are looking for fun Summer Activities for Kids this Essential Oil Moon Dough Recipe is a fun Rainy Day Idea! It only takes a few ingredients and everything is edible even though it probably wouldn’t taste that great it’s completely safe for kids. If you have little ones like I do then that is important because no matter how many times you tell them not to put it in their mouths you know sometimes they still do.
Here is what you will need:
1 Cup Corn Starch
3/4 Cup Fractionated Coconut Oil (the Liquid Version)
5 Drops Essential Oils
All you need to do is combine these ingredients in a bowl and mix well, let your kids help you, getting messy is half the fun :)
Once all the ingredients are combined you may need to add a little more coconut oil if it’s too crumbly, then let your kids go to town! You can roll and play similar to Play Dough, my kids love helping me make this and I love that I don’t have to worry about the stove like I do with traditional play doh recipes.
You can watch this quick video for the directions on how to make homemade moon dough.
