A couple of times, Mia and I have made "moon sand" - see my post about it here. Then I recently came across a slightly different version of it, this time called "cloud dough" - mostly the same ingredients as the moon sand, but then I specifically liked this recipe, Calming Lavender Cloud Dough - the idea to add some colour using crushed chalk, and lavender essential oil really appealed to me!
I only made a quarter of the recipe as mentioned, I didn't have enough flour. Crushing the coloured chalk was quite a mission, I used our pestle & mortar, but was well worth the effort!
This was such an awesome sensory play for both girls - the soft texture, the pretty colour, the divine smell. Ella did try and have a taste but realised it's not tasty, haha!
Both girls slept really well last night - could it be the lavender? Maybe!
