The Most Amazing Natural Lavender Kids Play Dough Recipe
Play dough is our thing. I can’t help it; we love everything that playdough has to offer. It’s funny the last time my mom came to visit she told me she didn’t know anyone that made as much play dough as we did. I think she was saying we make it too much but she just doesn’t understand our love for sensory play and all of the great benefits that come from playdough.
After I shared a few reasons why playdough rocks, she wanted to make playdough 😉
Adding the fresh Lavender to this homemade playdough gave it a wonderful natural texture.
Lavender Calming Playdough
We enjoy keeping a simple, peaceful homeschooling day going, so adding another calming activity that is fun and works my girl’s hand muscles is a win for us.

- 2 Tbsp. Cream of Tartar
- 3 Tbsp. cooking oil (we use Coconut oil)
