My cousin in-law tried a diy recipe for cloud dough or moon sand for her daughter. She used flour and baby oil (as I’m sure many have seen in the different pins on Pinterest). I wanted to replicate her activity for D. However I didn’t have any baby oil and didn’t really want to pay the prices I found. So I went to Pinterest and found several pins using flour and vegetable oil. Eureka! We already had vegetable oil at home, plus if D decided to try and eat it then it would be safe.
D seemed to enjoy the activity. His favorite was to pick up the sand/dough and let it fall out while he opened and closed his hand. At one point he even stepped into the bin or sand/dough. Definitely something I would try again.
