When it comes to crafting or kids activities, my all time favourite is anything that involves sensory play. You see, sensory play is loaded with benefits! Kids learn trial and error, conservation of mass, hypothesis testing, and so much more. Yesterday, my son and I set went to the store to grab a couple of ingredients to create coloured cloud dough. When I found pumpkin spice in the bulk section, I could not resist. Coloured cloud dough is SO easy to make! Adding pumpkin spice creates an extra dimension that is so much fun.
Here is how to make pumpkin spiced coloured cloud dough!
Pumpkin Spice Coloured Cloud Dough Recipe
What you need
- Food processor
- 8 cups of any type of flour
- 2-3 pieces sidewalk chalk
- 1 1/2 cups of vegetable oil or baby oil
- 1/2 cup of pumpkin spice
- Glitter, Fall leaf confetti, and candy pumpkin optional
- Old sheet, disposable table cloth, or patio
What to do
Using a food processor, grate chalk until it’s a fine dust. Combine all ingredients in a container, aluminium pan, or similar. Add in glitter, or confetti, and pumpkins. Grab household toys such as tractors, diggers, farm animals, and sand toys. To contain the mess, place the container on old sheet, disposable table cloth or outside. Then enjoy!
