Does your child enjoy playing with new types of homemade play dough? Cloud dough is super easy to make, takes only 2 ingredients, and this version is even taste-safe! (Making it safe for toddlers who like to put everything in their mouths.)
Usually cloud dough is a mixture of flour and baby oil, but to make this edible version we substituted vegetable oil for the baby oil. (Note: by edible I mean it is taste-safe; I don’t think anyone is going to really want to eat a bunch of this!)
Cloud Dough Recipe:
In a large bowl, combine 4 cups of flour with 1/2 cup vegetable oil. Be sure to measure carefully!
Mix well with your hands. (Kids love this step!)
Once the cloud dough is well mixed you will have a fun sensory dough that will hold a shape when squeezed together, but will crumble back into flour consistency easily.
The kids started off their playing by baking some cakes…
They also used sand molds to create a few fun shapes.
But, like so many of our sensory dough experiences, eventually the cars made an appearance!
This taste-safe cloud dough makes a great pretend snow and is so fun to play with.
