Cloud Dough Construction Site Sensory Bin

Share on Pinterest

This weeks virtual book club features a favorite of my 2 year old, Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site. We were due for a bit of sensory play this week so I thought what a better theme to do it with!

First up I made some chocolate cloud dough, added some logs and a new set of construction vehicles as a treat. The Cloud Dough Construction Site Sensory Bin was a huge hit with the kids!

Remember to check the bottom of this post for more ideas to do with the construction theme.

How to make chocolate cloud dough:

This one took a bit of thinking! I was going to use the brown coloring but I simply did not have enough! So if you do have enough brown coloring use this recipe for brown cloud dough.

For chocolate cloud dough you will need:

  • 3 cups flour (normal white flour)
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 vegetable oil (olive, sunflower, a mix)
  • Ziplock bag

Add the flour and cocoa into the ziplock and give it a good mixing. Add your vegetable oil to the flour mix and squeeze the air out of the ziplock as you close it.

Mix the flour/cocoa and oil until it seems well mixed. Pour this mixture out into your sensory bin and give it a bit more mixing if needed.Pair your kids favorite book Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site with a sensory activity! Make chocolate cloud dough and play construction!

Add cinnamon logs to your sensory bin. These logs can be used as building tools.

Add the construction vehicle set to the sensory bin.

Read the book with the kids before showing them the sensory bin. If they can see you set it up best read then setup. 🙂Good Night Construction Site Sensory Bin

Since our ground is made from cloud dough the dough is easily molded into “rocks” and other structures. The cinnamon logs can be stacked up to build buildings.Chocolate Cloud Dough Recipe

The cloud dough keeps for weeks and I have already thought of another sensory bin we can do with this specific color. We will also redo this sensory bin again as the kids really enjoyed it.

By the way this cloud dough sensory bin smells SO nice!Chocolate Cloud Dough Sensory Bin Idea

  1. That cloud dough is perfect for the theme. I’ve only ever made it once and after it going everywhere never again. How do you keep it contained?

    • I use a deep sensory bin so they can swish things around all they want. Also the tiled floor helps, it is easy to sweep up 😉 maybe try a shower curtain under the sensory bin? then you can just pick it up when done.
