This month’s sensory dough is slime and most slimes out there are made with borax, which from what I’ve been told is a pretty abrasive detergent. So I searched to find a slime recipe that did not have any borax and that’s how I found Fun at Home with Kids’ [...]
(July 10, 2014) Yep this month sensory dough is fizzy! All I could think of was a volcano, not much of a dough… So I searched around and found this post from Life Lesson Plans. It shows a malleable dough and it’s fizzy, bingo!
We followed the instructions and Nico got [...]
Before we left for Montreal in 2010, there were talks about a new science centre in Calgary, since the old Telus World of Science downtown was too small and also somewhat outdated. Fast forward four years and not only are we back in Calgary, but the almost [...]
(June 11, 2014) June is the first really warm month of the year.

The only differences [...]
(Apr. 10, 2014) This month’s sensory from the series of Lemon Lime Adventures is scented dough!

(March 16, 2014) When you think of Iceland, what do you think of? Glaciers, geothermal wells, volcanoes and – puffins! Nico decided that puffins were his favourite animals (for at least three days!), so we wanted to dig [...]
