Show adults the benefits of sand play with our Outside Sandpit sign www.pdfeducationsupplies.com.au
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
10kg Extra Fine Play Sand (can be purchased from local hardware store)
3 Cups Cornflour
3 Cups Water
1 Tablespoon Dish Washing Liquid
Cap Full of Tea Tree Oil (offset any damp smells that may eventuate over time)
Plastic Tub with Lid (a shallow container makes for easier playtime access)
HOW TO MAKE IT
In a large mixing bowl add the water, dish liquid, tea tree oil and cornflour. Mix the ingredients together bit by bit so that you get a goopy consistency that almost feels solid when you touch it.
STEP 2Pour 10kg of sand into your plastic tub.
STEP 3Add your liquid mixture to the sand a bit at a time while mixing all of the ingredients together with your hands. If your mixture feels too wet, add more cornflour. If it’s too dry, add a dash more water.
STEP 4Throw in some small spades, plastic cups for making sand castles, and any other essentials like Diggers and Lego men - then let the kids at it and enjoy the peace and quiet while they are happily entertained.
