How to Make Cloud Dough

Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve discovered loads of boredom busters. One of the activities that my children have loved this summer is Cloud Dough.


  • Flour
  • Baby oil
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Shallow flat container or cookie sheet
  • Mixing cups/spoon
  • Cookie cutters
  • Silicone Molds


Step 1: Combine the oil and flour

You could use a pastry cutter, a wisk, or even your hands. Personally, I think using your hands is the easiest, and the most fun!


Step 2: Mix Well

Put your kids to work mixing up the dough!

Step 3: Have fun!

Let your kids have fun! We use measuring cups, spoons, cookie cutters and silicone molds. The boys even run their cars through the cloud dough for kicks.
