DIY Idea for Kids: How to make your own play dough

Recipe:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup rock salt
1 T cream of tartar
1 T grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil
6-10 drops essential oil of your choice for scent (optional)
3/4 cup boiling water
Food color (optional)

Mix all the dry ingredients in a glass bowl. In a separate glass, mix the grapeseed oil and essential oils. Add the oil mixture into the dry ingredients and fold using the spatula. Add the food color in the boiling water and let it boil. Add 1/4 up of the coloured boiling water into the mixture and fold again. Slowly add the rest of the water into the mixture and continue folding. It is best to mix using your clean hands to asses the consistency. Based on my experience, the 3/4 cup water is good enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let your kids play with it! I used Geneyus, a Young Living proprietary essential oil blend, for this playdough so they can happily play with it in their hands when they are studying while also enjoying the benefits of the essential oil blend.

I used Geneyus essential oil blend by Young Living for this batch.
Have the kids cut different shapes with the play dough and let their imagine run wild.
My boys loved the play dough, it keep them busy a while.
This play dough was such a winner, I decided to give away some during my sonโ€™s birthday. I just put them in tin cans and printed labels for the cap. It was a hit among the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚
