Friday~ Christmas Countdown Day 19: Moon Sand (Not the activity I had planned but Aiden didn't take a nap yesterday and fell asleep at 6:00)
My mom was always a neat freak when I was little. Things like glue, glitter, and fingerpaint made her shudder. I still got to play with those things but not without a lot of whining! So, I have always embraced all things messy for Aiden. Well... that was before we met Moon Sand. The stuff itself is actually pretty awesome. It's kinda like sand but the grains aren't as tiny and it can be molded into shapes (which can then be picked up) without water. I guess Aiden is still too young for it. He's played with it twice now and about half of it is gone. The stuff is just drawn to the carpet! So, I will continue letting him play with it but once it's gone, it's gone (until I forget how much I dislike it and buy it for his stocking next Christmas!).
