When our playdate plans got canceled at the last minute, I decided to give this sensory activity a whirl. The girls and I headed to the dollar store to pick up two very large, shallow bowls and some beach toys. We then grabbed a 10kg bag of white flour and some baby oil. Et voila! Cloud Dough!
- White flour (8 cups)
- Baby Oil (1 cup)
Note: I discovered minutes ago that you can use olive oil instead of baby oil if your child still puts things in their mouth.
1. With my hands, I mixed 4 cups of flour with 1/2 cup of baby oil for about 3 minutes. [Double or triple depending on the size of your bowl/container]
2. Add toys and enjoy!
This stuff is so silky and smooth. It can also be moulded into various shapes. It was no surprise that Teagan was mesmerized by it. She happily sat there pouring cloud dough from one cup to the other and scooping it with her shovel. Quinn had fun with it for a little while before trying to throw it everywhere. She required supervision and entertaining.
|It looked this neat for about 10 seconds!|
