I’m a total believer that every child can benefit from thinking putty. Working their little hand muscles, keeping their brain focused, and just the thought of real relaxation, while they smooth the putty through their hands, are a few remarkable benefits. This perfect sensory dough is a great tool that can work wonders for adults too. That is why today we are sharing how to make stress putty. This is the best homemade putty!

We first fell in love with thinking putty with this Make Your Own Thinking Putty Kit. Sensory play is such a big part of our day and an important part of Little B’s homeschooling. I knew it was another homemade recipe I wanted to have here for everyday use.

This putty is so soft, similar to this amazing green apple scented play dough. You can easily mold it into any shape or use cool play dough tools with it. You can also stretch it, pull it, twist it, and squish it. It’s awesome!

Adding essential oils to your thinking putty gives it another level of therapy. Whether you use, lavender for a calming effect, peppermint for an energy boost, or something like A+ Attention for focusing. They will all have a wonderful effect on your child.
