*This little project is the main reason I did some freaky deaky shopping and got baby oil, flour, and the tupperware container.
Cloud dough is a great sensory activity for preschool kids. It feels silky smooth and is moldable so get out those sand toys. I made it late at night and ended up spending a good 20 minutes playing with it.
It’s so much fun and smells great. Not only that, it’s not greasy and feels so good when you run your hands through it.
I ended up getting a large Tupperware container with a lid and mixed the ingredients in the container. You could also use a large bowl. My daughter and I had a great time making ice cream cones, snowballs, and building sand castles with the cloud dough.
After we were done, I just put the lid on tight and stored it in a closet for the next time. Since I recently made it, I’m not sure how long it keeps. I imagine it depends on how much you play with the cloud dough…. I mean how much your kids play with it.
I let the little hummingbird play with it inside but I was right there with her so things didn’t get too messy and she was really good about keeping the cloud dough in the container.
Here’s what you need:
8 cups of Flour
1 cup of baby oil
Mix the flour and baby oil together with your hands in a large container until the dough holds together when squeezed. It took me about five minutes before the dough was mixed really well. I just used my hands and kneaded the cloud dough.
