Cloud Dough Recipe

We love Halloween and always have lots of fun finding ways to incorporate the holiday into our play.
This candy corn cloud dough has been a huge hit with my girls this month.
HOW TO MAKE CANDY CORN CLOUD DOUGH - fabulous fun for Fall!

Rosie loved the pumpkin and apple cloud dough we made last Fall so much that I knew this new recipe would be a hit.

Materials
Method
You want to start by making a batch of orange cloud dough.  This is very easy to make.  Just mix the flour, vegetable oil, and powdered paint in a bowl.  I couldn't find an orange cake mix, but if you do you could honestly just use that.  Cake mix and cloud dough have almost the same exact consistency, only the cake mix comes ready-made and scented.  So easy!  

The rest of this play recipe is really easy.  Add the orange cloud dough to a sensory bin and then open the white and yellow cake mix boxes and pour them in, layering to look like candy corn if desired

Once the bin was ready I tossed in Halloween cookie cutters, scoopers, and a few containers so that Rosie and Jewel could explore.  They had so much FUN!

The vanilla cake mix makes this bin smell just like candy corn!  The candy corn dough feels like fluffy clouds in your hands, yet it is mold-able

Candy corn cloud dough recipe for play- fabulous fun for Fall!

Rosie and Jewel played for quite a while, and then I placed the lid on our bin so that they could play again and again.  One thing I LOVE about cloud dough & cake dough is that neither material spoils.  As long as it is kept in a tightly sealed, dry container you can keep it indefinitely or until it gets soiled.  We still have our pumpkin cloud dough from last year, and the girls have had so much fun with it this Fall.
