Cloud dough

Cloud dough is fantastic for sensory development. I have found that kids who are a little tactile sensitive seem to prefer this above sand because it is soft and doesn’t really stick to their fingers.

You need:

  • 8 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of oil (You can use any oil really, baby oil smells nice but if your child still puts EVERYTHING in his mouth rather try something edible like olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon of tempera (powder) paint to colour it.

All you do is add everything together and mix well.

Add some utensils and little bowls and you are good to go. We put it in a big plastic container, but a nice big tray also works well.
