Looking online for some ideas for A & J to try out. I kept coming across something called “cloud dough”. My most recent excursions got me to TinkerLab where Rachelle wrote about trying “cloud dough”. It’s a simple mixture of 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil. The cloud dough sounded like a lot of fun so I thought we should give it a try. Well it definitely did not disappoint and I know they will be asking to play with it again. In using the cloud dough I was able to incorporate a lesson on animal tracks. Here is what we did.
Continuing on with our shapes theme. A & J were given a set of plastic shapes to play with. They weren’t given any specific guidelines at first. If there’s one thing that I have learned with children is to let them explore something new on their own. Once they’ve been given the chance to explore they will typically pay more attention for instructions.
