Every 1st Wednesday of the month I put out a messy play experience for the children during a ‘Stay and Play’ session.
I took in all of the ingredients for ‘Cloud Dough’ and the children thoroughly enjoyed mixing the ingredients themselves and then exploring the Cloud Dough with a variety of pots and shapes.
The children added glitter to the dough as something a little extra and one if them told me that the mixture:
“Smells like Raspberries.”
The Cloud Dough was extremely soft and the moulds created are very smooth and hold their shape well.
The mixture included:
- 8 cups of Plain flour,
- 1 cup of Baby Oil
- Glitter/food colouring are optional.
For December we hope to be exploring a ‘Frozen’ messy play tray including blue ice and soapy foam with lots of glitter!
