Cloud Dough

Cloud DoughCloud dough is super simple to make, and will provide your child with hours of fun.  I used this for both my almost 3 year old and my 9 month old, and they loved it.  It is called “dough” but it is more of a sand than a dough. Normal dough tends to stick together and you can roll it out.  While you can roll Cloud Dough out, this is more crumbly.  But does hold its shape…

INGREDIENTS:
4 cups flour (I used white)
1/2 cup oil (I used vegetable oil, but you can use baby oil too)

DIRECTIONS:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until the consistency is enough that the flour slightly holds together when pressed.

THINGS TO DO:
I usually give my kids a whole heap of baking utensils, cups, bowls, trays, funnels – anything you think they might use to play with the dough.  With the 9 month old, I just put a mat down, gave him the bowl of Cloud Dough and let him go wild.

It got pretty messy.  The 9 month old ended up being stripped to his nappy as his clothes were COVERED in flour.  Everything vacuumed up pretty easily too, thank goodness!!!

If you’re wondering what a suitable starting age is for Cloud Dough – I would suggest anywhere from when they can sit up (around 6 months).  I found my 9 month old wasn’t really interested in trying to eat it, but if he did I wouldn’t worry as it is only flour and oil.
