Sensory play – Cloud dough

Cloud dough - Fun!

(Jan. 22, 2012) Ok I’ve been seeing this around for a while and avoiding it, thinking Nico wouldn’t play with it anyways (he doesn’t like touching stuff like that). Most people I saw trying this had older kids, but after 2 months of seeing how much fun everyone was having, I gave [...]
