Chocolate Cloud Dough

This month’s sensory dough is cloud dough. I found a recipe for chocolate cloud dough at Inspiration Laboratories website.  Cloud dough is very simple to make.  I thought it would be fun to do chocolate as a Valentine theme for February. 

The basic recipe for cloud dough uses flour and an oil, usually baby oil is called for.  I thought it would be more baby friendly to try a substitute that was a little more edible.


Here’s what I did:

  • 1  3/4c flour
  • 1/4c cocoa powder
  • 1/4c vegetable oil

We did add some more oil for a more crumbly texture.  They used the addition for the lava in their volcanoes!


The kids really liked that this was very much like wet sand.  Since they haven’t gotten a lot of sandbox time, with all of our snow, this was a nice indoor activity.  For the most part they kept it in the platters I gave them.  What got on the table and the floor cleaned up surprisingly well!
