I've seen this all over Pinterest and decided that today was the day that we would make this! And it's really simple and quick!
1 Cup baby oil
8 cups flour
Mix together and that's it!
I mixed it up in a big plastic bowl that I have. Nudgie got all excited because she thought I was making brownies and then got all disappointed when we weren't making brownies. (Guess I'm making brownies later!)
I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with this mixture at first, but once you start working it through, it starts to blend -- and it smells oh so good!
I then dumped it into a plastic box that I had used once upon a time for my scrapbook paper. I tossed in some scoops, cupcake liners, and some bowls and then set up a blanket on our family room floor so that any mess that we were sure to make would be easily cleaned up.
We had a blast making little bricks and stacking them. Rubbing the cloud dough between our hands. (It just feels so wonderfully silky! I could definitely see playing with this as a meditation instead of zen sand garden!)
Then a little later we started drawing letters in it. Nudgie did a great job of identifying the letters I wrote and then wanted to try her hand - literally! Imagine my joy and surprise when she "wrote" the letters R, C, T, and L all by herself. Even more amazing was that we haven't even learned about the letters R and L yet!
In the end, we really liked playing with this and will probably pull it out again. I'm curious to see if, after awhile, it dries up. A friend suggested storing it in a ziploc bag in the fridge. So, we'll give that one a shot too!
