I am so excited to share this easy recipe for Cloud Dough! It uses ingredients you probably already have in your home.
If your family loves homemade slime or play cooking, you’re gonna love this!
Be advised this can be a VERY messy activity but well worth the easy clean up!
Ingredients: 1/4 cup Baby Oil & 2 cups of flour
This easy recipe for Cloud Dough really is as simple as that. I let my son do all the pouring and mixing. Using measuring cups is always a teachable moment. Pouring is also great practice for fine motor skills and patience.
Cloud dough has a soft, fluffy texture and it smells wonderful! It’s like sculpting, building, and scooping damp sand. It can be molded and formed into many shapes! Experiment with the texture by adding more flour or more baby oil.
When I added a few toys, his imagination took off. He also played with different types of spoons, scoops, and containers for transferring and molding the Cloud Dough.
Cloud dough is as messy as you would expect something made of flour. I let him play at the table above a carpeted floor for easy cleaning. Just a damp cloth for the table surface and a quick vacuum of the floor.
My son spends a lot of time watching my husband and I cook together. Food prep is often a family activity! He has even been doing some cooking himself. He not only had a lot of fun with this activity, he was also really excited to see the pictures I took.
