Beach Exploration

The extremely warm weather a few weeks ago tricked my kids into thinking summer was already here! Now that it’s turned chilly again (hopefully for the short term) they are anxious for the warmer temperatures to return so they can head to the beach. In the meantime, we brought the beach to us, indoors!


5 cups of flour

1 cup baby oil

Misc Beach toys/shells (I got shells at Michaels)

Bathing suits/trunks!

I decided to do this in our kitchen sink because we don’t have an outdoor space. I taped up the sink drain and poured the “cloud sand” in. I tripled the above recipe and it was plenty for my 2 girls to play with. This kept them busy and exploring for nearly 3 hours and I had to pull them away from it. The great thing about this “sand” is that its totally moldable for castles, not greasy or grainy and a super easy clean up. It smells lovely too! Enjoy an indoor day at the beach!
