Summertime is here and living in Arizona, we are either in the pool or stuck indoors because of how hot it is. We get very creative around here in order to keep the kids busy. One of our favorite summer activities is making homemade cloud dough. All ages love this stuff and it only takes 3 ingredients to make – Johnson’s® Baby Oil, flour and a sprinkle of glitter. We used gold glitter to look like sparkling sand, but you can use whatever you have on hand. The dough smells heavenly because of the baby oil, making it even more fun to play with. Kids can shape, squeeze and pour the dough. Add a few small toys for hours of sensory play fun!

2 cups Johnson’s® Baby Oil
8 cups flour
1/4 cup glitter


Step 1: Head to Walmart and pick up your ingredients. I found the bottle of Johnson’s® Baby Oil in the beauty section and I’ve also seen it in the baby aisle.

Step 2: Add 2 cups of baby oil to 8 cups of flour. Use a pastry blender to combine until fully mixed.
