Oh...what to do when it is over 100 degrees outside and you don't feel like packing everything up to go to the beach? You make cloud dough! Soft, fluffy, mold-able cloud dough!
I had seen the idea on Pinterest awhile back and was really looking forward to making it! I thought it would be so much fun to bring the "beach" indoors on a hot day. It is a super, easy-peasy recipe that only needs 2 ingredients to make.
Cloud Dough Recipe:
8 cups of flour
1 cup of baby oil
Mix ingredients together in a bowl until the baby oil is thoroughly mixed in. Transfer to a bigger container (I used a small, shallow under bed storage container) and add scoopers, moulds, shovels, cups, beach toys, etc and let the fun begin!
Little man had a blast helping me scoop and dump the flour, pour the baby oil in and then stir and mix our concoction together! I think this has been one of the more successful creations - little man played with this for over an hour for 3 days in a row! He couldn't wait to dive in every day to build castles and knock them down! It also lasts a really long time. We just keep the lid on the plastic box and it has kept nicely.
Little man calls the container his sand table. :) This made me think that it would make the perfect addition to an actual sand table...and that we should make him one!
