What is Cloud Dough?
This dough is a sensory delight for toddlers, as it has a wonderful smooth texture but has properties similar to that of wet sand. If you squeeze the cloud dough together it can be formed into shapes but then it will crumble apart again.
So let’s make some cloud dough…
Cloud Dough Recipe
- 8 cups of flour
- 1 cup of baby oil
This recipe came from Pre-school Play. We only made up half the mixture because I ran out of flour. :)
How To Make Cloud Dough:
- Add the flour and oil to a large bowl or tub.
2. Mix the ingredients together until it is a crumbly mixture. Then time to play!
To say this was a hit with my boys would be a complete understatement. They played in the bowl full of homemade cloud dough for well over half an hour (in the record-breaking heat, mind you)! And I’m not ashamed to admit that even I enjoyed running my hands through this silky concoction.
This is definitely one of our favorite sensory activities!
