Orange scented cloud dough


Little Bee isn’t a huge fan of messy/sensory play, he doesn’t seem to like the texture of messy materials. he loves water but not much else, I do however keep trying in the hope that one day he’ll decide he loves it.

This morning we made orange scented cloud dough. 

Cloud dough looks a bit like sand and feels silky and smooth to touch, until you squeeze it in your hand and it moulds like dough. We’ve made cloud dough a few times using a basic cloud dough recipe. Today however i decided to add some scent to see if little Bee would be more interested.

He enjoyed using the spoons and tools I gave him but he still wasn’t sure about touching the dough, after all my encouragement and enthusiasm, he just wasn’t having any of it.

I on the other hand had loads of fun!

Orange scented cloud dough:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup of veg oil
  • 1 tbs orange essence
  • zest of 1 orange
  • few drops of red food colouring

Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well.

*This recipe is toddler friendly, so if you have a little one who puts everything in their mouth, this recipe wont do them any harm.

Flourishing little mind
