Cloud Dough Recipe



Cloud Dough – 1/2 cup Corn Starch – 1/4 cup Lotion Optional - 2-3 drops Food Coloring


Measure all the ingredients precisely with measuring cups that you fill up to the top and level up.

Measure Ingredients


In a medium mixing bowl, add lotion, liquid food coloring if used, and corn starch.

Combine Ingredients


Stir with a spatula at first. Dig your hand in the mixture and squeeze the ingredients to form a dough.

Form a Dough


After 1 minute of kneading the dough, it should form a moldable dough similar to classic playdough.

Keep Squeezing


Play with the 2-Ingredient Cloud Dough as is or crumble it in a plastic tub to create a sensory bin.

My dough is sticky

My dough is drying out

If the dough is too sticky, add more cornstarch, 1 teaspoon at a time, knead between each addition.

If the dough is drying out – this always happens after 15-20 minutes – add more lotion, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, knead to incorporate, and adjust if needed.
