Play dough recipe



The scented play dough we have been making and playing with at the clinic has been such a hit, we thought we would share the recipe with you! The best part about this recipe is that it does not require a stove-top cooking component, like many other recipes. It is also fun for your child to participate in the making.

Play dough is a great activity for exploring action words (make, roll, squish, push), color vocabulary, and size and shape concepts, just to name a few. It can also be fun for pretend play activities; scented doughs are particularly great for kitchen play. This scented play dough is also great for engaging a sensory modality that we often forget: smell.

Ingredients:

● 2 cups plain all-purpose flour

● 1 cup salt

● 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar

● 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

● approximately 1 1/2 cups of just boiled water — you may need more or less

● food coloring, glitter, spices, and/or extracts to add color and scent

In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients. Add the hot water mix and knead. After everything is starting to combine, you can add the food coloring, glitter, and/or spices and extracts. Allow to cool, and you are ready to play! Store in a plastic bag or in an airtight container. It usually keeps for just over a month or two.

With this recipe, we have created cinnamon, pumpkin spice, peppermint, and chocolate play dough.y at
