How to make 2 Ingredeint Cloud Dough
Step 1 Measure out 1 cup of cornstarch into a bowl.
Step 2 Add in ½ cup of lotion to the cornstarch and mix together. You can start by mixing it together with a spoon, but once the consistency starts to resemble dough, it's easier (and more fun!) use your hands.
Step 3 If you want different colored dough, add in food coloring to your liking.
This dough is great for creating shapes like snow men. You can also roll it out and use cookie cutters to create different shapes. This is a great sensory activity so having your preschooler describe what they’re feeling and seeing is a great way to get them thinking about their sensory exploration.
Storage: This cloud dough can be stored for up to 2-3 weeks at room temperature as long as it is stored in a tupperware container after squeezing all the air out.
