How to make Cloud Dough

I am determined to get this blog started again! So here are a few posts on last years adventures.

We often make cloud dough now – a bit like moon sand but much cheaper! Simply take 8 cups of flour and mix with 1 cup of baby oil and you have instant stuff to mould and play with. I used lavender baby oil which resulted in a very chilled afternoon in the garden! We made houses for polar bears and sandcastles for cows?!? To extend the activity we made the cloud dough together, then added various cups, spoons, tubs then animals gradually. We do cloud dough inside too but it is best to have individual trays or the two little girls can go a bit crazy and we have a snow covered kitchen!
