Cloud Dough with Vehicles

Cloud Dough Vehicles (3)

It’s been a long time since I made cloud dough, which is basically just a super soft play dough requiring only flour and oil. In the past I’ve made this with baby oil, but this time I used regular vegetable oil.

Cloud dough should be 8 parts flour to 1 part oil, so I used 4 cups flour and 1/2 cup oil. Mix with a spoon or your fingers until incorporated.

To add purpose to the play, we added Veronika’s construction vehicles. I also gave her two little cups that I thought we could use to mold sandcastles, but she preferred to use them for scooping, pouring, and filling up her trucks.

Or vice versa, using the trucks to fill up the cups!

It was fun to drive trucks through the dough and make tracks.

Or just to sift through with her fingers. This stuff is always so soft and fluffy.

It’s also nice for play because it clumps together enough to momentarily hold a shape.

And when she tired of the game, a quick rinse of cold water got the vehicles clean!
