Default Cloud Dough

Made this Friday, kids loved it. Played it again today. Lots of fun!

Cloud Dough
8 cups flour
1 cup oil (baby oil or cooking oil) baby oil smells better but obv cooking oil is safer for someone who might mouth it.

I mixed and then added in a touch more oil to make it more "packable". Kids loved making sandcastles out of it.

I might do this for our "ice cream" theme this weeks. I need to pick up a 25lb bag of white flour at Costco when I get there.

OOOh, I want to try this! It sounds like it would be so much fun. I'll have to pick up some extra flour and the baby oil. Thx for sharing!

I made this a couple months ago...kids had a BLAST! But there was a huge mess afterward....it would be great for outside or a sand table with covering under. We did it at kitchen table with cover.

My kids love it. I have two cloud dough bins. It's a messy cleanup every time so be prepared for that. I have to sweep off the chairs before I do the floor.

You know you have severe Celiacs when you read this post and think "GLUTEN!!! GLUTEN!!! GLUTEN!!!"

This sounds like something my kids would have a blast with. Thank you for sharing the recipe! I am going to make some to add to our sand table.

Try it with rice flour. We have severe allergies in this house, rice is off limits and wheat is currently safe so we have the opposite problem- go figure!!


And yes, I should have mentioned that this is an outside only activity here and my kids strip down and change completely afterward . Its fun though!
