Here we are enjoying lovely spring weather this week. We’ve had the windows open and a lovely breeze has been flowing through the house. The thing is I was still feeling the blah from this winter and the busy week we just had. I wanted a pick me up… Since we all love sensory play a Scented Natural Play Dough with a ton of positive benefits was exactly what we needed.
No-Cook Lemon Scented Natural Play Dough
This pretty girl loved smelling the lemons…
So making fresh lemon scented natural play dough seemed like the perfect thing to do today. I mean really who doesn’t love the smell of lemons? Did you know that lemons are known to enhance your mood and bring positivity to you? For me lemons just make everything seem fresh and some days I can really use that extra mood boost. It definitely makes my kids happy too.
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Salt
2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar

Optional: Lemon Essential Oil
*Add all the dry ingredients together in a bowl
* Slowly add HOT water into your dry ingredients and Mix.
Optional: Add a couple drops of Lemon Essential oil into dough

Viola! It’s playtime.
*Essential Oils are another love of mine. Do you use them? What are your favorites? Feel free to share them in the comment section.
