Cloud dough is a very versatile project! It's best suited for younger kids, although older kids can certainly join in if they wish. This simple project can be twisted into multiple different variations for maximum exploration.
What's Going On?
You can explore the properties of liquids by setting this up as an experiment! Gather a couple of liquids other than oil, such as syrup or lotion. Record how many tablespoons of each liquid it takes in order for it to successfully mix with the flour.
You will notice that thicker liquids require more amounts to mix. This thickness is known as viscosity, which we touched upon last week!
