Homemade Cloud Dough How- To
Please note: There are two ways we have made cloud dough. We have used the original recipe and a taste safe cloud dough recipe. The only difference is the oil, one is made with cooking/vegetable oil and the other with baby oil. They are both awesome sensory play recipes. I haven’t always had baby oil on hand, so we have often used cooking oil. That is what I chose for this cloud dough sensory play recipe since I was using other tasty ingredients anyway. The baby oil does have a mild scent where as the vegetable does not.
- bin or container
- 5 cups of flour (we have used all different kinds including gluten free and buckwheat!)
- 1 cup of vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
- mini marshmallows
- play tools like cups and spoons work great
