A Few Tips:  
  • If you do not have powdered paint on hand and would like to color your cloud dough you can make your own paint powder using chalk.  
  • All you have to do is place a few pieces of chalk in a zip-lock bag and hammer it until it is a fine powder.  Then, combine the powder with the other dry ingredients before adding the oil.  Full tutorial here.
  • Store your cloud dough in an airtight container between play, and it can be used again & again!
