DIY Cloud Dough!

Updated: Sep 13, 2019



Have you heard about kinetic sand, moon dough or cloud dough? They are all variations of a similar substance, and each one is great for sensory play. Kinetic sand uses sand as the main ingredient, while what I've seen referred to as both moon and cloud dough use flour as the main ingredient. The best part is you can make them at home!


I have an upcoming Art Playdate that I'm preparing for next Tuesday, so I decided to make some cloud dough for the little ones to play with. I found a simple recipe on Tinkerlab.com that uses 8 cups of flour to 1 cup of oil. I decided I wanted to color my dough, so I included some powder paint pigments as well (you can find these on amazon for around $3 per color).
