So...Cloud Dough

Before we start just a quick snap of my Bear looking after his sleeping princess :)

Right, now back to business.  In the theme of sensory play I decided to try a recipe I found for Cloud Dough (also know as moon sand)

The ingredients are simple, all you need is 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil
Pour into a tub & mix well (you can even get your children involved int he mixing if they aren't like my Bear)
Then give them some paper cups, silicone muffin/cupcake moulds etc and watch the fun.
It has the loveliest texture, super soft but also holds it's shape so nicely.
Sadly Bear did not take to it that well, he would not put his hands in it...just touch with the fingertips briefly before washing off the hands in the pool and we had a few mild meltdowns before we even got that far.  He did however use a cup to scoop some up and try make a castle...so I have hope yet!
Evie however LOVED it and also enjoyed scattering it everywhere so the paving looked like a freak snow storm had passed our way :D
