How to Make Apple Scented Cloud Dough
I started out with a little crushed chalk because I did not have any powdered paint. This gave the cloud dough its color.
I wish you could smell this Apple Cloud Dough Sensory Bin through the computer. It is amazing! I could have sat beside them playing all day long.
I like to keep things simple most often for playtime. I set out wooden bowls, tongs, and apple erasers. I sat the sensory bin on a plastic table cloth to make clean up easy.
This Sensory Bin was set up for exploring scent, touch, and sight. Also, fine motor skills practice picking up the apples with the tongs by hiding and seeking the apples after burying them under the cloud dough. It also helped the kids to put their imaginations to work.
We found these tongs at the farmers market a few weeks ago. For 99 cents we could not pass them up. I knew the kids would have fun playing with them.
The apple erasers came from Target.
The wooden bowls were a fun find while out shopping with my hubby one day.
The plastic bin we have had for a long time and it has been played in many times!
What I used for the Apple Scented Cloud Dough:
red crushed or powdered chalk(powder paint can be used too)
8 cups flour
1 cup cooking oil
and apple scent (from apple soaps)
What I did:
I got the plastic bin out the kids would play in and added the chalk, the flour, the oil, and then the scent. I mixed with a spoon and then my hands until it was moldable but still crumbled.
This is my all time favorite, as of now, Cloud Dough recipe we have made! Perfect for Fall but great any time of the year.
