Cloud dough recipe

Cloud dough is the perfect sensory recipe for pre-schoolers to play with. It has enough form to create fun shapes but then falls apart for them to create something new. Make it on a rainy day and watch them play!



  • 8 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup baby oil


In a large container, combine the flour and dough using a spoon.

Keep covered for storage. Do not mix with water.


  • Use cups, lids, play dough shapes, cookie cutters and anything else you can recycle for your little ones to shape this fun play dough.
  • You can add a little scented oil if you want your cloud dough to smell good too. Some soothing lavender oil is ideal.
