Strawberry Scented Edible Cloud Dough

Strawberry Scented Cloud Dough sounds scrumptious to us.
It's hard for me to believe it's February already, and when I began thinking about our sensory play for this month, of course a few key things came into my head. Those things were Valentine's Day, the color red, and strawberries. So how can we mix these things together for a fun sensory play, make it toddler safe and get some learning into our activity for the older boys? I'll show you... 
The Cloud Dough Recipe used for this activity was
4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cooking oil (examples-coconut, veg. canola)
1 packet of strawberry kool-aid
1/3 cup water
First mix the flour and oil in a large bowl, then in a separate smaller bowl mix the water with the kool-aid. Then add the kool-aid to the flour mixture. Viola! 
Strawberry smelling edible but probably still not tasty cloud dough.  
To get in some Valentine and reading fun, I added a bag of candy conversation hearts to the older boys batch. Their activity was to find the hearts and read them to each other. They had a blast and thought it was hilarious telling each other to " Call me", "Be Mine", and "I Love You". When the older boys were finished and I checked to make sure there were know more candy hearts, the toddler was allowed to play. The great thing about this dough is it is completely toddler and baby friendly.
I wish you could have had the chance to smell the dough- YUM!
