The Best Homemade Play Dough
There are so many homemade play dough recipes out there on the internet today, but this one has been tried and tested by my kids and my nieces time and time again. It seriously is the best. I’ve made some that you have to add tons of flour to each time you get it out just to keep it from being too sticky. I’ve made some that dries out way too fast. This one has neither of those qualities.
I love making my own play dough. It’s so easy, it’s way cheap, it’s so nice to be able to customize your colors. And what’s more, you can also customize your scent. I really don’t like the smell of store bought play dough.
I like to add essential oils to my play dough. When your kids are playing with it, you can choose for it to be a soothing, calming experience by adding lavender or serenity or it can be a stimulating and creative experience by adding citrus essential oils. Playing with play dough can be a very therapeutic activity for your kids… or even for yourself.
This recipe makes a large amount, so you can either make several batches and color each batch while it’s cooking, or you can make a batch, divide it into smaller portions, then color it. I’ve done it both ways. It just depends on how much I want to make/how much of each color I want.
