Crafts with Nightcat: Moldable Sand Dough


It’s Thursday and that means I’ve got another purrr-fect Crafts with Nightcat for you.


This one goes out to all the aspiring sculptors out there. It’s also great if you just want to play around with some next-level, mess-free sand!


Yep, moldable sand dough, or “sticky sand,” is a cool craft you can build and shape. It also vacuums up easily, so it’s a quick clean-up. Plus, it sticks to itself, but not to skin!


Here’s how to make your own sticky sand…





— 5 cups of play sand (Tip: Home Depot sells large quantities for under $5)

— 3 cups of all purpose flour

— 1 cup of vegetable oil

— Container





  1. Combine all ingredients in container.

  2. Mix well. That’s it!




Once you’ve gotten the ingredients all mixed up, add beach-themed items—buckets, shovels, sea shells, etc.—for even more fun.


Moldable sand dough will last all summer long when it’s stored in a covered bin or container between play times.
