- 8 cups of flour
- 1 cup or vegetable oil
- Peppermint extract
- Red powdered paint (you can make your own)
Begin by mixing several drops of extract into the flour in a sensory bin or container. Then add the vegetable oil and mix well. It will take a bit of elbow grease to get it all mixed well. Lastly, sprinkle red powdered paint in the bin. Add scoopers and the like and the FUN can begin.
We also added fake candy canes, a Santa, and a few reindeer
As kids play the red powder mixes in, creating beautifully marbled candy cane dough
I told Rosie this sensory material was candy cane clouds. What exactly are candy cane clouds? Why they are the magical clouds just above the stars that Santa and the reindeer fly through. That is all little ones need to know for their imaginations to take flight right up there with Santa in the clouds

We share fun kids activities several times a week!
