Top post of the year: Cloud Dough

The best way to make children good is to make them happy. – Oscar Wilde

A couple days ago I shared my Top 10 Posts of 2011, and today I’m sharing my most popular post of the year…Cloud Dough!

top post of the year: cloud dough

This post was featured on Ohdeedoh, BabyCenter, Craft Gossip, and it’s all over Pinterest. Playing with Cloud Dough is a wonderful sensory experience that both children and grown-ups have a hard time staying away from. When I made the first batch up for my kids, I couldn’t keep my own hands out of the tub of floury goodness. For more cloud dough fun, Flight of Whimsy is responsible for giving me this awesome project to begin with and we made a Gluten-free version that was almost as delightful as the floury version.

  5. great pints altogether, you simply received a
    new reader. Whaat may you recommend about your submit that you simply made
    a few days in the past? Any certain?

  6. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running
    off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or
    something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great
    though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

  7. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites
    for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  8. You actually make it appear so easy together with your
    presentation however I in finding this topic to be really one thing that
    I believe I might never understand. It seems too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I am having a look forward to your next publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
