Play Dough: Green Lemon Scented

September 23, 2015

I don’t know about you guys, but play dough seems to have a marvellous effect of my toddler! It’s calming and keeps him focused and busy for ages. One time, he spent three hours (aged 1 1/2) playing with play dough. That was impressive.

It’s also a great way to add some sensory fun to play time. I’ve not really experimented with scented play dough until now. We have had colourful, vibrant and sparkly play dough, but no smelly stuff. This time, along with adding green food colouring (we do usually use pint for a more vibrant colour), I added a tablespoon of Sicilian Lemon Flavouring to a basic, no cook play dough recipe. The end result is gorgeous!

Soft, squishy, colourful, smelly fun! 

Sealed in an air tight container, the play dough stays soft and smelly for weeks. If you’re using paint instead of food colouring, you may find that it doesn’t last as long and the play dough dries up quicker.

Word of caution: don’t make this if you’re on a diet or your favourite food is lemon drizzle cake! It will make you really hungry!

We teamed our batch of (lime green!) play dough up with:

  • cake pop straws cut to various lengths
  • different shaped shiny shapes/sequins
  • paper cup cake cases
  • heart shaped plastic cutters
  • dried pasta

    my two enjoy pushing buttons into Playdoh – its good for counting practice but they’re also good for making eyes and noses with too x
