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.
