- Play dough - follow directions on the side of the Bi-carbonate of Soda container to make some (found in the Supermarket).
- Essential oil - with the scent of your choice for older children OR
- Baking essence - for those likely to eat the dough
Add the smallest drop of oil to your batch of play dough. Remember that you are using oil so too much will make the dough oily and it won't be usable any more. You may also need to consider kids with allergies (and pregnant mummies) if you are making it for a playgroup, kindy or mums group.
Be as creative as you like with your dough! Lavender scented play dough would be great in a lilac/ purple colour or strawberry play dough in a pink. Rose could be red or pink and my favourite, vanilla could simply be plain. Have fun with this and let me know what colour and flavour you created.
Our light blue play dough has a vanilla scent and I'm sorry you're not here to smell how great it is but you can certainly make your own fantastic smelling play dough. Have I inspired you to give it a go?!
