There are so many things to love about winter. The cozy sweaters, hot chocolate warming our hands, children playing in the snow and fresh cranberries being strung as decoration. Winter is on its way, and we are excited to add homemade playdough and fun winter activities to our bucket list for this holiday season. Today we are sharing a lovely no-cook cranberry play dough. It’s perfect for the Christmas season.

You might notice Miss Bells smelling the wonderful play dough. She is so used to our delicious smelling dough. I don’t think we can go back to unscented. Not to mention this is such a great sensory activity for everyone involved.

Cranberry Playdough is easy, and the kids can help.

Ingredients:

2 cups of flour

1 cup salt

2 Tablespoons Cream of Tartar

2 Tablespoons oil (whatever cooking oil you like. I usually use coconut oil)

3/4-1 cup Cranberry Juice

Optional:

We added several squeezes of our red glitter Watercolors for extra fun.

Fresh or Frozen Cranberries are optional.

We LOVE adding Essential Oils to play dough.

 

Directions:

1.  you want to add all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl. (great job for kids)

2. Add oil

3. Heat 1 cup of cranberry juice to a soft boil and slowly pour it into dry mixture. (adult job) I add 3/4 of a cup first and mix if it seems a little dry add more. Since my little ones are usually the ones adding the dry ingredients sometimes a little bit ends up on the counter instead of the bowl. We are working on that. So, in the end, you will want 3/4 – 1 cup of hot cranberry juice.

4. Mix for a couple of minutes.

Optional: add the color of choice. Food Coloring, Kool-aid, Watercolors, and essential oils.

5. Mix until it forms a ball and let cool for 10 minutes.

We had a wonderful day playing with our cranberry play dough. All of the kids gathered around and enjoyed making shapes, cranberry sauce, and spending time together.

I can’t wait to show you what we did with the playdough…
