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.
