Cloud Dough
So here is something for the tiny tots (6months plus)

(and most bigger children will enjoy too)
This was shared by a lovely early years worker some time ago

But heres a tip before you get started. I recommend to do this activity on the floor covered by a large dust/old sheet. It's a very messy activity but if you use a sheet it takes minutes to set up and minutes to clear up.

What you need

Basin, large bowl or sand table
Sand toys or plastic cups and tubs

Mix 8 parts flour to one part cooking oil.(you can use baby oil too but cooking oil is safer if your little one is likely to put it in their mouth). Add glitter for older children

You will end up with something similar to moon sand and will be able to mold and build structures similar to sand castles and it just feels lovely too.
