Cloud Dough

Let kids be kids. The messier, the better. 😂 Oh God, help me when it comes to clearing up because let me tell you I am terrible and a horrible procrastinator.

I wanted to share one of Bubba’s little activity we enjoyed last week. Homemade ‘edible’ sand or the very trendy name : Cloud Dough.

4 parts FLOUR
1 part COOKING OIL

She was not very keen on touching it initially but she took to it rather quickly and started transferring the sand from one pot to another. She is very into cutlery now, and tried to spoon the sand into different cups as well as the floor. Joy 😅 This is what learning through play is all about I suppose.

The dough is pretty mouldable. You could even make a little sandcastle if you wanted to .. right in the middle of your living room!

It is (still) a permanent fixture in the room as I have yet to tip this in the big bin. Haha! Its a good thing too as we had her little 5 year old friend for a sleepover and she enjoyed it as well. She whispered to me and told me that the best part of the day was playing with the sand in the morning 🙂 Simple joys of a little flour and oil.

Here’s another picture with proper bed hair and pjs enjoying her indoor sand pit.
