1 cup of baby oil
8 cups of plain flour
How to create Cloud Dough
In a large bowl, add one cup of baby oil to 8 cups of flour. Stir well. You can use a whisk or spoon.
And you are done! Add the dough to medium size shallow tray, add baking cut out shapes, small cups and play dough toolsd work a treat. This activity works best out on an alfresco area or lawn. If you do use this inside, be sure to place a plastic table cloth to catch any spills.
Cloud dough will keep indefinitely when stored in a container with a lid.
Lavender Scent - add a couple of drops of lavender essential oil. (Any of your favourite essential oil scent can be used)
Coloured Dough - add oil- or gel-based food coloring to color the dough (water-based food coloring doesn't work). The gel based food colouring can be found in the cake/baking section of the supermarket.
Shopkins is so popular with many young girls right now. Encore's Shopkins Party Theme is flying off the shelves in Perth! Many parents are asking if there are any pre-party arrival activity ideas we can suggest. Last month my daughter Jodie and I created these super cute necklaces. We used a dab of hot glue at the base of the hook and Shopkin to secure in place. If you have a Shopkins fan in your home - these are a great idea. Great for Favour bags if you have the time.
Looking for a super easy, fun way to countdown to Easter for your family? Then why not adapt the Christmas Advent calender for an Easter one!
What you will need
- Empty Egg carton
- 12 coloured plastic eggs (I bought mine from Coles today)
- Sharpie or number labels
- Easter grass (Coles has this also)
- Mini Easter Egg or figurine (We used Shopkins as we have a Shopkins fan at home)
Once you have the plastic eggs, fill them with the Easter Grass and your mini egg and Figurine. Label the eggs 1 -12.
12 Days prior to Easter Sunday, (16th March 2016), hide one egg in your garden or house for the kids to find. Jodie is my little one in our house, so I need only one carton. I would suggest to avoid any disputes, to create a carton for each child in your home
