How to make Cloud Dough

Today we made wonderful soft, light clay to play with. One of our dear homeschool friends calls it “cloud clay”. And we love this name!

How to make cloud clay

1 cup conditioner
2,5 cup cornstarch
Food coloring if you like to add color

Put the ingredients in a bowl and mix it. It is easy and fast to make and will give the kids a couple of hours of fun. Depending on their focus and imagination.

We liked our cloud clay to be plain this time. So we didn’t add any color.




After the boys were done with playing, I stored the cloud clay in a ziplock bag. Hopefully it will not dry out that fast and they can play with it again. We’ll see.
