Welcome to our 4th month of sensory dough play!
This months theme is scented play dough and today I would like to share with you this rather quick and easy method to get lovely smelling play dough.
No Cook Scented Play Dough Recipe
You will need:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup warm water
- food coloring (green and yellow here)
- essential oil for the lovely smell! (my choice here is lemon balm)
- Optional extra I used: Glitter!
Mix the flour, salt and cream of tartar. If you are making one color batch add your food coloring and essential oil to the water then mix. If you plan to make 2 or more colors just mix in the water.
Divide the plain play dough into 2 balls and make a little well in the middle, this is the perfect place to add your coloring (5-10 drops) and your selected essential oil (1 drop). Mix and roll till colors are well blended. Add your glitter at this point as well.
My kids LOVE play dough! They each grabbed a color and were off to play at the table.
