My kids love sensory play and after making cloud dough we also made cloud fluff! Yes, maybe over-doing the ‘cloud’ activities {we also did rain clouds in a glass!} during our weather theme but with a cloud theme happening in the baby’s nursery as well I have clouds on my mind :o}This is seriously a fun sensation. I enjoyed it too. It’s hard to describe. You know what shaving cream would feel like on it’s own – already pretty fun for kids, but the cotton wool provides a little resistance and texture!It’s definitely messy […]

As a kid we used to make this at summer camp. For us it was called Oobleck, based on some green slime in a Dr. Seuss story. It was a favourite at camp, also because we would get to bring some home with us.
