Calming Playdough Recipe with Essential Oils

Such a fun and easy activity to do with the kids or grandkids!! I started making playdough with my kids because they have so much fun making it, and it is so much cheaper than store bought!!!

***Also, not just for kids!!!***

Mixing, measuring and kneading is such a great sensory activity for kids (and adults) and with enough salt, homemade playdough can last up to 3 months. For an added aromatherapy benefit we started adding essential oils and dried lavender into our homemade recipe!! A little bit of an added calm to creative time!!

Essential Oil Sensory Playdough Recipe

2 tablespoons corn syrup

2-3 tablespoons corn starch

2-3 cups flour

1/2 cup salt

10 or so drops of your favorite essential oils , I used lemon for a lively creative mood and lavender to calm and soothe the senses.
