Ohhh, So Messy, Flour and Baby Oil

I got this idea from Lisa Murphy.  You should check her out at Ooeygooey.com
 We combined a cup of baby oil and 2 cups of flour in a pan.  The kids stirred it up and then we added some color.  It looks a lot like cookie dough.  It has a super cool consistency and made our hands nice and soft.  When R began getting her hands into it, my son made himself scarce.  He isn't big on getting his hands dirty, so I put some in a Zip lock baggie so he could have a sensory experience too.  He was much happier with it this way and my daughter had so much fun mixing and slathering.  This is super messy.  We put a towel down and that didn't help much.  We will do this outside next time.  It does clean up really easy.
