Fun with Cloud Dough!

If you are anything like me, after baby showers and new baby presents, you ended up with at least one bottle of baby oil. Personally, I have absolutely no idea what I am supposed to use baby oil for, or in what circumstance I would use it. It has simply been taking up space in my cabinets for nearly three years. So, when I found cloud dough on Pinterest some time ago, I was thrilled to finally find a use for baby oil. But, being a bit of a neat freak, I wanted it to be an outdoor activity. Making cloud dough is very easy. I did a small batch which is 4 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of baby oil mixed together.
We broke out the sand toys and shoveled, sifted, and molded the cloud dough. E played with it for about 35 minutes. My inclinations of the cloud dough being messy were very correct, so I warn you to also do this outside or be prepared to clean up a mess inside.

I kept the cloud dough in a covered bucket to try to use again. E even helped clean up the cloud dough left behind outside! She loves using her broom, and insisted on sweeping off the bench. I definitely recommend this fun and easy activity!
