Clubhouse Cloud Dough Bakery

Sometimes I get an idea from a book the Clubhouse Kids are really enjoying, or comments I hear in the classroom during play. Even just a question from a child or parent can spark an entire array of activities in my mind.

In this case, I just had a lot of flour.

Really, too much.

So, the Cloud Dough Bakery was born.

Each Clubhouse Kid picked a "flavor" and we whipped up a batch.

Chocolate Cloud Dough

3 Cups Whole Wheat Flour

1 Cup Cocoa Powder

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Mix it all up. Really, that's it.

We've used Chocolate Cloud Dough before, back when Dinosaurs attacked Valentine's Day. You know you're curious.. :)

Strawberry Cloud Dough

4 Cups White Flour

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Red Food Coloring

Mix red food coloring in with the vegetable oil until you get a nice red color. Then, upon mixing all of the ingredients, you get pink cloud dough.

Vanilla Cloud Dough

4 Cups White Flour

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Vanilla Extract

Mix some vanilla extract into the vegetable oil.

We didn't really measure, sorry. It just smelled good.

There you have it, a Neapolitan rainbow of Cloud Dough.

Added ice cream scoops, mini tin baking pans, and cupcake wrappers.

The Clubhouse Kids decided we needed "sprinkles" and brought over some glitter from our art supplies.

When packed tight into a container, cloud dough will hold it's shape.

A lot like building sandcastles, only indoors, with flour... and, in this case, glitter.

They "baked" up breads, cakes, pancakes and other treats.

They took turns, sometimes being the baker and other times being the customer.

Dramatic play meets sensory play, that's always fun.

Plus, I got to make some room in the pantry after getting rid of all of that flour ;)

Cloud dough stays well in an airtight container, and can be played with again and again. It can also be mixed with Gak and then you get...
