Cloud Dough Recipe

Cloud dough has been really popular lately so we thought we’d include a cloud dough recipe even though it isn’t technically really playdough. On the other hand it’s probably our easiest playdough recipe so it’s a great place to start if you’ve never done this before. This cloud dough is super easy to make and great fun, especially for young kids. Depending on the type of baby oil you use, you do have to watch really young kids eating it, but it isn’t usually a problem.
