cloud dough

Homemade play dough is lots of fun for kids to play with, but it's nice to have an alternative for days when you don't have time to make a new batch.

If ever you find yourself in that situation, try this easy cloud dough recipe that requires no cooking and just 2 simple ingredients!



Measure out some baby lotion or hair conditioner and place it in a medium-sized bowl big enough to hold all the ingredients



For cloud dough that is colourful rather than white, add a few drops of food colouring or liquid watercolour paint



Add cornstarch and stir it into the baby lotion with a spoon, stirring gently to prevent it from flying out of the bowl



When you've gotten as far as you can with the spoon, continue kneading the dough with your hands until it feels even and smooth

2-ingredient cloud dough feels even softer than regular play dough, and because it contains baby lotion and no salt, it is perfect for kids with sensitive skin.

Plus, since it is made with cornstarch rather than flour, it is also gluten-free. This makes it a safe alternative for kids who have coeliac disease or who are sensitive to gluten.
