Calming Cloud Dough

September 23, 2016
Last week baby Jewel was having trouble sleeping at night, so I whipped up a calming cloud dough to help soothe and lull her.  

Lavender cloud dough is therapeutic and helps soothe, calm, and relax little ones. It is AMAZING the effect this cloud dough has on chilling out my kids and refocusing their energies in positive ways. {Great for time out, just before bed time, and anytime you need to calm kids down}

This recipe only took a few minutes to make and has really helped to calm and soothe my girls.

Lavender Cloud Dough Recipe
Method

Mix all ingredients in a sensory bin or container.  If you desire the cloud dough to be colored you can use powdered tempera paint.  If you don't have any on hand you can easily make your own using sidewalk chalk.  See how we made ours here.  Cloud dough is an amazing sensory material in that it is super soft, fluffy, and mold-able.  It also lasts indefinitely as long as it is stored in an airtight container.

Handling sensory materials like cloud dough is therapeutic and helps relax little ones.  Adding a lavender scent provides another calming attribute.  The aroma of lavender is known to soothe and lull.
