Cloud Dough Recipe

This recipe is so much fun.  It kept my kids occupied for at least 45 minutes.  It is super simple and made of only 2 ingredients: flour and baby oil.  While at the Dollar Store this last week, I picked up a small bottle of baby oil.

We used a small tub to store our dough.  The recipe is just a 1:8 ratio of baby oil to flour.  Any flour should work (we used bread flour because I have a huge bag of it).  We did 1/2 cup baby oil and 4 cups flour.  

It cleans up pretty easily, which is good because Aaron started throwing it everywhere.  Our dog ate up the contents that ended up on the floor (is baby oil bad for dogs? :/ ).  Such a fun sensory activity!  I'm sure they'll be asking me for the cloud dough a lot more often now!  It should store pretty well in an airtight container.  You can even put it in the fridge to make sure it stays fresh longer!
