Today we celebrate First Walk in Space Day.

Alexey Arkhipovich Leonov, of the former Soviet Union, was  born May 30, 1934 in Listvyanka, Kemerovo Oblast.  He is a retired Russian cosmonaut and Air Force General who, on  March 18, 1965, became the first human to step out of a spacecraft and walk in space.

While talking about space today, we thought what a perfect day to make and play with some moon sand.


Try this recipe  for moon sand, it is amazing moldable, holdable, squishable, squashable, sand that never dries out!
