Cloud dough is very easy and cheap to make. It consists of only three ingredients, all of which are edible. 
The consistency of this dough is very nice and soft feeling and quickly turn to a damp feeling when being squeezed and molded. 
Cloud dough is a wonderful sensory activity for small children. 


1 cup corn flour (regular flour will also work)
1/8 cup vegetable oil
Food coloring

Note: This will make a ball about the size of a tennis ball. To make more just double up on ingredients. 


1. Pour flour in bowl
2. Make a well and pour in oil. 
3. Stir using wooden spoon for about 3 or 4 minutes. 
(Dough is ready if it holds together after being squeezed in your hands.) 
4. Add drops of food coloring and mix. Add more until desired color is reached.
(This step is optional. You can leave the dough white if you wish).
