The evil that is moon sand.........

OK, here's a top tip for any of my friends with autistic children:

DO NOT buy any Moon Sand/Moon Dough.

If someone buys your child some as a present, take it back. Do NOT open it.

It really doesn't matter how many times you tell them to KEEP IT ON THE MAT, they are incapable of doing this.

I know, I know, why not just throw it away and not let them play with it? Tempting, it really is, but that's where the autism comes in. It wouldn't be forgotten; in fact it would be requested frequently, and then cause anything from a minor to major meltdown when you aren't able to produce it. So keep it or throw it, either way it's a PITB. Plus, it is actually one of the toys that gives Sasha the most pleasure - must be the texture I imagine.

Anyhow, that's my top tip for today. Now, does anyone know how to get a 6 year old to stay in bed until at least 7 in the mornings??! Yawn......

  1. Any sane mother avoids it like the plague. It's Daddy who buys the Moon Sand, Floam and all the other "evil" items ground into my good rug! L x

  2. That stuff is the work of the Devil himself. Along with silly putty on carpet. Pure Evil. I have both and they have been relegated to the garage, right next to the garbage cans.
