I found a recipe for moon sand and was instantly struck with a fantastic idea for this portable moon sand station. This portable moon sand station would make the perfect gift for youngsters who like constructing sand castles! You could also substitute homemade playdough, in place of the moon sand, for a sturdier construction material!
