There are so many ways kids can play with this stuff, and it lasts indefinitely, which is always a bonus. It can easily be stored and vacuums up fairly easily. We have made cloud dough in tons of ways; visit our play recipes collection for more ideas.
Chocolate Cloud Dough Recipe
Nothing says Valentine's Day quite like chocolate, making this play recipe perfect for the holiday. The aroma of chocolate also improves mood and stimulates brain function, making it a fantastic addition to early learning activities.
We also added heart scoopers, pink cupcake liners, bowls, cookie cutters, and heart skewers to act as candles.
Rosie and Jewel have had lots of fun exploring and have found all sorts of ways to play! The girls especially loved making pretend cupcakes and other chocolaty treats
After a few weeks we will store our cloud dough again for future play. I am thinking it would be a great play material to pull out around Easter. Really though, this stuff is so fun it is sure to be a hit with the kids anytime!
A Few Tips: If you don't have cocoa powder on hand you could use hot chocolate packets, chocolate extract, or Duncan Hines Frosting Powder. You can find tons of stuff to add to your cloud dough sensory bin at the dollar store. We actually got all the added elements there.
