(Love my Montana cutting board! Find your state cutting board here. )
This soft and easy homemade play-dough with essential oils is the absolute BEST play-dough ever! And it smells incredible! I have purchased one hundred million tubs of the name brand play-dough and they always end up a dried crumpled mess within the week.
My favorite thing about this recipe is that I actually had all the ingredients in my house?! So there was no planning, we just jumped right in and whipped up a batch for each kid. Because Heaven forbid I force my children to share their play-dough??♀️.
Seriously though, this play-dough is so soft and smells so yummy! And it is SUPER quick and EASY to make. Mom and kid friendly!
Soft and Easy Homemade Play-dough with Essential Oils
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- 2 tsp cream of tarter
- 3/4 cup salt
- 1Tbs oil
- 5-8 drops of essential oil (Optional)
- 5 drops of food coloring (I love these no artificial dyes, food colors )
Mix all ingredients together in medium (2qt) saucepan. Heat over medium-Low heat stirring constantly. Use a spatula to scrape sides and work into a soft dough ball. When the dough ball is the consistency you want remove and let cool on wax paper. Knead once cool and store in an airtight container.
