Orange Eat’n Friday!

TGIF!! Wahoo! Let the weekend commence! I’ve been busy stirring some fun up in the kitchen. And to no avail, this time it was the creation of Play dough. Not just any play dough though, the non-toxic, therapeutic kind. The kind that if the little one eats, will not hurt him, although it may be a bit salty, yuck! And, the kind of play dough that you do not mind your child handling=)

Heres the list of ingredients used to make some for your littles! It was super easy and quick to make.

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tb of Cream of Tarter
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tb of olive oil
  • food coloring
  • EO’s of your choice

So, for the EO’s, I used Thieves, Lavender, Orange, and Peppermint!

You then combine the water, salt, COT, and olive oil into a pan and make warm (do not boil). Remove from heat, dump in the flour and mix. When well blended, place on parchment paper where you will knead the dough until no longer sticky. playdough1playdough2

Then pull apart however big you want the different pieces to be. I did four separate balls at this point. Add the coloring of your choice and the EO and knead again until mixed. playdough6 playdough5 playdough4

I then let my two year old play! I kid you not, he sat at the table and played with this play dough for an entire hour. WHY did I ever wait so long to make this for him!

The Cream of Tarter will keep this play dough fresh for a few months is stored in an air-tight container! And the BONUS….. the essential oils are also going to keep the bacteria at bay during play!

sn; just take out the lavender play dough before bed and let them play. The kids will be inhaling the lavender that may help calm them and they have no idea! Score for both parents and kiddos!
