Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    My daughter LOVES sensory play! Try this quirky-feeling cloud dough by adding one box of baking soda to a bowl. We added it to her designated sensory bin. You can make one too, out of a plastic container that has a tight-fitting or snapping lid.

    Next, pour in one packet of Kool-Aid drink mix. Any color and flavor will do -- pick your favorite! My daughter wanted pink lemonade!

    Next, slowly add in some water and mix. Be careful not to add too much water or the cloud dough will be runny and too liquid. Add a little water at a time until it feels "mold-able".
