Being almost 1, an age where he’s starting to get into everything, my Little T needs things to take his mind off the fact that there are objects such as DVD players and Sky+ boxes in the house to ‘play’ with. One day last week whilst it was throwing down with rain last week (which sadly meant no trip to the park), I decided to pass an hour or so by making some cloud dough.
Cloud dough is really simple to make – 1 part vegetable oil to 8 parts flour. So, I used a normal drinking mug full of oil and 8 mugs full of flour in a clean and dry washing up bowl. Mix it really well with your hands and there you go! Little T and I spent about 5 minutes mixing it with our hands. It feels like you’re making a crumble topping but without the anticipation of digging in afterwards. Messy, yes but also really fun! If doing this with children that are a little bit older you could add some glitter, a dash of food colouring or some scented oil for more of a sensory experience but I kept it plain in case Little T put any in his mouth.
