Sick but still having fun!
So we have been a house a sickness! But still have a toddler to entertain so luckily we had help from neighbours and a bit of nursery time to fall back on and in between we set up a few activities.
Luckily we had some 'cloud dough' made up already (thanks to The Imagination Tree for the inspiration for this).
7 cups of any type of flour (we used plain flour), 1 cup of vegetable oil or baby oil (we used vegetable), powder paint to colour the dough and as much glitter as you wish!!! (We also had fun making it together - Chops loves to stir)!
I put some stones, cutters and pots on a large play tray and we just had lots of fun and some how dinosaurs joined us - always a bonus. Its such lovely stuff with a silky texture and makes solid forms and then crumbles back to a soft loose texture - could play with it for hours myself but Chops can manage about 15 - 20 mins at a time these days! Best thing is its easier to clean up than sand and safe if a bit ends up in the mouth (which it invariably does with Chops). It has kept really well in a sandwich box too, so great to whip out when needed.
