Last week we had a nice day so I decided to try a different type of dough - cloud dough. I thought I'd take it outside and they could play with it out there. That way if it drops it's no biggie. Camden always loves dragging his construction vehicles in things so I figured he would love to do that and sure enough that's how he spent the entire time playing.
The recipe for cloud dough is simple with two ingredients: flour and baby oil. I found a recipe that where you use 1/4 cup oil for 2 cups flour. I started with this and just added more oil or flour until it felt like I could mold it.
It was definitely a hit! Alex and Camden seem to love sensory play! I'll be breaking out this recipe again sometime when the weather is consistently nice and we can head out back on the deck!
