Cloud dough is something I’ve waited all winter to make! I’ve seen it done on plenty of other blogs, and every one mentions the mess-factor so I was waiting until the weather was good and warm so we could take it outside.
Cloud dough (also known as moon dough) is silky and mold-able and takes just two ingredients to make. It’s amazing stuff! The Hooligans absolutely loved it. I’m not kidding when I say it kept them engrossed for well over an hour.
Add one cup of baby oil to 8 cups of flour. Stir well. I used a pastry cutter to mix mine, but a spoon or whisk would be fine. Transfer your dough to a bin or basin (I purchased this kitty litter box at the dollar store, and it’s perfect for sensory activities), and that’s it. You’re done!
You’ll want to wear old clothing or an apron (you can find my tutorial for my aprons here. I make them out of the legs of our old jeans). It’s definitely messy play, and I personally wouldn’t suggest doing this inside.

On a side note, I am often asked what kind of camera I shoot with. About a year and a half ago, I bought myself a Canon Rebel XS, and I absolutely LOVE it! It’s an entry-level DSLR camera, and it’s my baby! I do not digitally alter or enhance my photos except to add a title and my blog name to the feature photo in each post. The photos that appear on my blog are straight out of the camera. You can get the details on the Canon Rebel XS here:
