3 Ingredient Taste Safe Cloud Dough Recipe

Share on Pinterest

After the success of our previous cloud dough recipe with the kids we decided to make another batch for a recent play date BUT this time we used different colors!

I must say I am rather happy with how these turned out as well!

How to color Cloud Dough

To make cloud dough we used our new method of using oil based food coloring and premixing the coloring in the oil before adding it to the flour.

In our previous batch of cloud dough we only used 2 cups of flour per color, for this cloud dough batch I used double because we had 4 kids who were eager to get into it.

General ratio is 1:8. That is 1 cup of oil to 8 cups of flour.

To make multiple colors I used 4 cups of flour to half a cup vegetable oil with a teaspoon of oil based coloring.

I used vegetable oil instead of baby oil like so many others use because 2 of my kids still love to taste things! The veg oil makes the cloud dough taste safe.

Add your 4 cups of flour to a zip lock bag or bowl, pour in the veg oil and color mix combo and shake/stir.

It will come to a point that it looks like the below picture. Here you will get your hands in and pinch the cloud dough to spread the colors totally and get the resultant vibrantly color cloud dough.

Select a few play items for the kids. Once again I went with some scoops, silicone muffin molds and cookie cutter shapes.play with vibrant colors

Because of the yellow and blue colors my 5 year old pretended to be at the beach and moved a handful of blue to the yellow cloud dough area to pretend the sea.make a pretend beach scene

My 2 year old thought scooping the cloud dough into the muffin cups was brilliant and made a bunch of gorgeous muffins mounds.make muffins and other shapes

Later the scoops were abandoned for fingers and making a bunch of pinched balls. This is great for fine motor and pincer skills!scoop and play

I also caught an ant making off with some of our taste safe cloud dough!!the ant sneaking off with some Taste Safe Dough

My friend took the batch of cloud dough home with her for her little one to play with further. She recently told me that it has turned into a mud type garden with a bit of water added and various sticks from the garden! What a great sensory adventure!

Pin this recipe for later or our other one for smaller quantities!
