Gingerbread Cloud Dough

Posted by on


Have your kids ever played with cloud dough?
It’s a wonderful alternative to sand – or it’s expensive (but fun!) hybrid, kinetic sand.
It’s a powder-soft dough that clumps together easily to form shapes. It has two main ingredients which are both kitchen staples, making it super easy to whip up when you just need a quick activity to keep the kids happy.
I love to customize our cloud dough to themes or seasons – and since this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids’ selection is Gingerbread Baby, I thought a gingerbread cloud dough was the perfect choice!

Step 1

Measure out your flour into a large bin. Add enough cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger to make a strong, festive smell.

Step 2

Add in the oil and stir well.

Step 3

After stirring as much as you can, check the consistency with your hands and manually mix it up, as needed.

Step 4

You want a dry dough that clumps well when pressed together.

Step 5

First, let the kids dig into the plain sensory bin and then add in the "add-on" items after the initial enthusiasm starts to wane.

Step 6

This cloud dough lasts forever, but I personally throw ours out after about a month of play.
