Day #52 Baby It’s Cloudy Outside
by Sara le Roux, Owner and Inspirer at The Creation Station Penistone and District
With Boo at pre-school I decided to ditch the laundry pile and get messy with Izzy again.
Today’s adventure is ‘Cloud Dough’. I managed to find a recipe on the ‘Lemon Lime Adventures’ website that was for edible ‘baby-safe’ Cloud Dough.
So many dough and foam recipes contain ingredients that cannot be eaten and with Izzy putting EVERYTHING into her mouth at the moment I didn’t want to spend our entire time saying ‘No Izzy, not food’ 🙂
C’mon Izzy – time to get messy!
What You’ll Need
- 1 cup of baby rice cereal
- 3 tablespoons of coconut oil – we used 100% natural oil
- Tray – we used a shallow Gratnell tray
- Something to cover the area you will be using – we used the disposable floor mat from Poundland that we used in ‘Gloop, Glorious Gloop’ but something like newspaper, bin bags or pvc tablecloths/tarpaulins would work just as well.
So preparation first – suit on Izzy, floor mat down and off we go!
Cloud dough was so simple (and quick!) to make.
Pour 1 cup of the baby rice into a tray or container. Izzy loved playing with the dry rice….
Melt the coconut oil – it literally takes seconds in a microwave – you don’t want it to be hot!
Mix the oil and the rice cereal together and if necessary allow it to cool before you start playing with it 🙂
Izzy was memorised!
She kept poking at the mixture and giggling to herself…….then she got stuck in…..and tried to start a food fight with Mummy!
I felt completely at ease knowing that if she ate some of the mixture it was absolutely fine – quite healthy really 🙂
When she was finished I took off her suit, gave her a quick wipe down and off she went!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
