making cloud dough

We needed a good rainy day project that our little friend M could do also, I found this recipe for cloud dough here .

8 cups of plain flour
1 cup of baby oil

This smelled so good, I LOVE the smell of baby oil. This took only a few minutes to make and they played for a good 30 minutes before becoming distracted. So all in all a great way to pass the time. Older kids can have fun with it also. Next time we make it I plan to add food coloring just to make it a little more colorful. Here’s what we came up with:


Measuring out the flour 🙂




Pouring the baby oil.


mixing it all together



Now time to play!


I have some candy molds that I got at a thrift store that worked perfectly!









As you can see it was very messy but SO much fun!
