When it comes to crafting or kids activities, my all time favourite is anything that involves sensory play.  You see, sensory play is loaded with benefits! Kids learn trial and error, conservation of mass, hypothesis testing, and so much more. Yesterday, my son and I set went to the store to grab a couple of ingredients to create coloured cloud dough. When I found pumpkin spice in the bulk section, I could not resist. Coloured cloud dough is SO easy to make! Adding pumpkin spice creates an extra dimension that is so much fun.

Here is how to make pumpkin spiced coloured cloud dough!
