Toddler Activity of the Week: Cloud Dough
What on earth is cloud dough?!
That's what I said too.
It was easy enough to make: 4 cups flour to 1/2 cup oil.
So I tossed it together and put it in a plastic bin on the back porch.
Apparently the girls thought the same thing.
They played with the stuff on the back porch while it drizzled rain
for THREE WHOLE HOURS!
I couldn't believe it.
We had a playdate the next day. Just a picnic in someone's backyard.
I bought two bags of flour worth. I filled a swimming pool.
All these kids couldn't keep their hands out of it either.
And they played quietly and kindly. Rare for this age group.
Do yourself a favor: go make some cloud dough for your toddlers right now. Just make sure you keep this outside... or on a huge tablecloth. :)
