Homemade Eucalyptus Play Dough

eucalyptus play doughWe always make homemade play dough.

The tried and true recipe we use comes from an old elementary school cookbook- you can   find it in this old blog post.  The only difference is, for the eucalyptus play dough you add green food coloring and some eucalyptus oil.  (I usually add a few drops of the oil after the play dough is complete.)

The dough is soft and pliable. The children love to play with it.

Sometimes we cut it;

Sometimes we squish it.

It is the perfect play dough for days with super drippy noses!

This recipe is great for other essential oils as well.

One of my personal favorites is lavender.

Do you have a favorite type of play dough?

I'd love to hear about it!
