Mouldable sand (cloud dough)

When I read about the mouldable sand at The Imagination tree site, I just knew I had to try it with the children.

Armed with 2 trays, a measuring cup, 2 forks, a bagful of shells and alphabet cookie cutters we went out exploring what they have been blogging about as sensationally glorious substance. The best part of it is you only need two ingredients: 5 cups flour and 1 cup baby oil and violaa! It was really so nice to the touch! Best of all, Milos was totally into it... for 3 hours! :D

With this activity a big success with Milos, it made me think if making a zen table for them will do wonders,there's only one way to find out :)

Good thing there's plenty of zen table ideas to read at Let The Children Play.
