Cloud Sand

In an effort to get the boys to finish school work and chores in a timely manner, I bribed them with cloud sand.

Cloud sand is really lovely stuff!
Soft, silky, moldable (is that even a word?), and super easy to make.

Mix together 8 cups of plain flour with 1 cup of baby oil.
The baby oil gives it a wonderful scent.
I actually think it helped to calm the kids a bit.

This kept them busy for HOURS which allowed for me and Mary Grace to have a little cat nap on the couch. Thankfully, it cleans up pretty easily too...and the mess was well worth getting to nap!
