Sensory Cloud Dough Recipe

 I've seen and heard about this cloud dough recipe for a few years now.  Today AG said "Mom, I really miss summer." Translated: "Mom, I'm bored to death and miss playing outside in the sunshine and warmth." So I ventured into the crawl space, dumped a few things out of a low sided bin and combined it with another bin of miscellaneous stuff (organization and it's finest) and we sacrificed almost an entire bag of flour in order to make the infamous cloud dough recipe! This recipe is super easy and will literally take you a few minutes to make. Chances are you already have everything in the house to make it so this is great on days you're really grasping for something to do!


  • 8 cups of flour 
  • 1 cup of oil (Some people use baby oil, I used vegetable oil and a splash of Rusk moroccan hair oil. Don't judge).
  • A few drops of patchouli oil, because we are hippies like that. 
  • Low sided rubber container.  
  1. Mix.
  2. Play.
  3. Enjoy!
  • I doubled the recipe because the kids were so into it.  Some people do half, some stick with the actual above recipe. 
  • It's not the cleanest things your kids will ever play with so be prepared to sweep up after they're done.  
  • We ended up using two rubbermaid bins, one for each kid because they were having creative differences.  
  • Does anyone know how long this stuff will last?
