Sensory Activity: Cloud Dough {Finished Friday} come link up your finished projects

Scroll down to link up your Finished Friday post (decor, craft, recipe, homeschool project, etc.)

I came across the recipe for cloud dough on Pinterest a little while ago and knew that I wanted to make it for the kids soon.

The cloud dough was extremely easy to make and can be stored away to use again. But, more importantly, our kids LOVED it!

The recipe is so simple: just 8 parts flour to 1 part oil (I’ve read of people using either baby oil or canola oil, but I think just about any cooking oil would work). We had some baby oil on hand that we had been given (and never used) so this was the perfect project for making it useful.

I actually ran out of flour making this so our ratio was more like 6 parts flour to 1 part oil. The finished product still worked really well. Simply measure out the flour and oil and mix them together with your hands for a few minutes. That’s it!

Cloud dough feels like flour when you run your hands through it, but when you press it together it is moldable.

It’s great for stirring…

and whisking…

and serving up pretend meals.

Our kids have now played with the cloud dough almost every day for an entire week!

I've been looking for ideas for more sensory activities with my toddler. This looks great because it's natural and doesn't require any chemical colorings or additives.

I've been wanting to make this cloud dough for a while now, but wasn't sure if it would turn out. Now I know it will. Thanks for sharing with the kids co-op.
