Can you recognize the secret ingredient in the picture? It’s actually Duncan Hines Frosting Creations! I saw these in an advertisement and knew they were a great ingredient to have in my pantry! I bought several colors/flavors (the smell is mouth-watering) and was waiting for the right opportunity to use them. Little did I know their first use would be in a sensory activity for my son 🙂
Want to know the how-to? Here it is:
- Mix 4 Cups of flour and 2 packages of your desired Duncan Hines color mixture together until well combined.
- Pour 1/2 cup of baby oil into the mixture.
- Use your hands to combine all the ingredients.
What a piece of cake! The prep time is so quick that you could whip this up in less than 5 minutes!
Cloud dough is a great sensory material on its own, but the fun is exponentially more interesting if you add some molding toys (the kind you would use to build a sandcastle) and let your little munchkins squish it into interesting shapes (I dare you not to spend a few minutes squeezing and shaping the material yourself! It’s quite the cathartic experience at any age!)
As for us, we have a St. Patrick’s Day activity we will be using this beautiful dough for. Visit us again soon to see how the activity turns out!
**Despite the yummy smell, this is NOT an edible play material.
