Sensory Dough made with essential oils can help calm a toddler, de-stress a teen, and won't harm a baby when he eats it. How many toys in your house are that versatile.
The dough itself is a great easy activity to make with your kiddos. Mine love to customize it with their choice of colors and essential oil scents. I mean can your play dough calm, boost mood, and even help improve immunity?
Here is the recipe we like best:
Mix the flour, salt, cream of tarter, water, and FCO together in a large bowl. Adjust the water or flour to ensure the right consistency.
Divide the dough into smaller sections and add 6 drops of essential oil to each one (we like to coordinate the color and scent like orange essential oil and orange dough). Then add a little bit of food coloring to each section and knead it in until it is thoroughly combined. It takes a little while to knead.
Store the play dough in air tight containers and enjoy.
