DIY Rose Petals Cloud Dough: A Sensory Delight for Kids!

Updated: Jan 12

Are you ready to embark on a magical sensory adventure with your little ones? Look no further than our enchanting Rose Petals Cloud Dough! This delightful and easy-to-make playdough is sure to captivate your child's imagination and provide hours of sensory exploration.

Follow the simple steps below and get ready to create a sensory experience that will leave your child in awe:


  • 1 cup of white hair conditioner (lotion works, too)

  • A few drops of pink or red food coloring

  • 2 cups of cornstarch

  • Rose petals


  1. Start by pouring 1 cup of white hair conditioner (lotion can be used as an alternative) into a mixing bowl.

  2. Add a few drops of pink or red food coloring to the conditioner. The amount of food coloring depends on your preference for the shade of pink.

  3. Gradually incorporate 2 cups of cornstarch into the mixture. Stir it well to ensure it blends evenly with the conditioner.

  4. Now, for the pièce de résistance, add the fragrant and colorful rose petals to the mixture. Feel free to add as many or as few as you like; the choice is yours!

  5. Mix everything together until it forms a soft, pliable "play dough" consistency.

Pro Tip: If the mixture feels too crumbly, add a bit more conditioner. Conversely, if it's too wet, sprinkle in more cornstarch until you achieve the desired texture.

Once your Rose Petals Cloud Dough is ready, the real fun begins! Let your child's creativity flourish as they mold, shape, and explore this incredibly smooth, sensory-rich playdough. The subtle fragrance of roses will add an extra layer of magic to the experience.

For an added touch of love, consider using red heart-shaped cookie cutters to create adorable shapes within the dough. The combination of pink, red, and the gentle scent of roses makes this activity perfect for special occasions or simply as an everyday sensory treat.

Remember, safety always comes first! An adult should supervise all activities involving young children, ensuring a safe and enjoyable playtime.
