Cloud Dough

Hello friends,

Today I wanted to share one of our favorite texture activities – “cloud dough”. I’ve been using it ever since my son was 1.

It entertains my kids for at least 30min, if not longer, and only takes 5min to make! 

Mix 8 cups of flour to 1 cup of baby oil. Whisk together. I usually do 12 cups of flour and 1.5 cups of baby oil each time we play.

It’s fun for kids because it clumps together but also sifts through their hands.

We usually play with it in a plastic kiddy pool to “help” contain the mess!

I’m not a huge fan of sandboxes so this is our alternative ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s left I store inside a tubberware and if we don’t use it within a week or so I toss it.

Happy playing,
