Sensory Fun – Cloud Dough

There are tons of good reasons to have your kids play with sensory activities but the best reasons is that it’s fun!  One of my favorite sensory activities is Cloud Dough.  I found this recipe from one of my favorite blogs – Fun at Home with Kids

The first time I made this I was so in love with how it felt.  Soft, smooth, and silky feeling.  The kids loved it too.  They loved it so much that they sent me inside to make a second batch.

They also were trying to divide it out so that they could each take some home with them when they left us. 

The recipe is so easy and so quick.  Plus it only needs two ingredients. 

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil.

I usually just dump the ingredients in a bowl and then have a kid mix it together with their hands.

I typically have the kids play with this outside.  When it spills out of the container (which it always does) I don’t worry about the mess because the birds and squirrels love to clean it up.
