Do your kids love sensory play? Mine definitely do especially when we whip up a batch of homemade play dough. They are always excited for a new scent or texture to enjoy. This holiday I decided to go with one we haven’t done in a couple of years and they always love. It’s an amazing no-cook natural scented peppermint play dough.
No Cook Natural Peppermint Play Dough
This is an easy no-cook natural peppermint play dough. It is the perfect sensory play for the holidays. The look, smell, and perfect wonderful feel will have your children asking to play with it everyday.
No Cook Scented Peppermint Play Dough Recipe:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons cream of tartar
3 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
2 Tablespoons oil (I use coconut oil)
Optional: red icing color or food coloring (we prefer Wilton’s icing color)
Add all the ingredients together in a bowl
Slowly stir in 1 1/4 cups boiling water (adult job) (if you want to add color, add it to the water before mixing it in)
Mix together – let sit about 10 minutes to cool and then it’s ready to play with.
*This can be stored in an air tight container and should last several months.
Peppermint Essential Oil is fresh and stimulating. It is known to enhance alertness and improve energy levels making it perfect for an afternoon of fun or a great holiday party activity.
