Since Violet still likes to put many things in her mouth, such as playdough, I wanted to try a homemade version that would be more friendly to her sticky fingers. Luckily, I saw this post on OhDeeDoh (a great website for all things kids) and wanted to try something new, called cloud dough. It was simple to make and the kids loved the different texture. We mixed 4 cups flour and 1/2 cup of oil for a good hour of quiet fun.
Highly recommend a larger covered surface. While it forms together, it also can run through your hands like sand!
Violet was napping while Max had the first go at this, so he had it all to himself.
