Cloud Dough

There is so much going on right now with this craziness happening in the world.  Some good things that are coming from this is more time being creative and more time to experiment in the kitchen.  One tricky thing is to keep our little ones busy while limiting TV time. Especially if you have an active kid like mine.

This recipe is super easy and most of us will have these ingredients at home.   It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients so it isn’t wasteful at this time.  You can save this in a container and reuse it a couple times.

To make this, you will need 2 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil.

Mix all the ingredients together.  This recipe is so easy that your kid can help make it.

I put the ingredients in a tupperware container.

At first the oil clumps up in balls but use your fingers to break up the oil into smaller bits.

I did try adding food coloring but it only works with oil based food color so don’t try it if you don’t have any.  Your kid wont even notice.

My son played with this for over an hour. He liked scooping it out and putting the cloud dough into molds.  The dough is interesting as it is soft and fluffy but also clumps together a bit just like damp sand.

I like this recipe since it doesn’t use baby oil. I hope you try this recipe out and have some fun with it.
