Lavender Sensory Playdough
*The color got a lot darker after sitting for a bit…after I took this picture!
2 3/4c flour
4t cream of tarter
purple or red and blue food coloring (if desired)
several drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Mix all the ingredients in a sauce pan on Medium Heat, and keep stirring until it forms a smooth ball of dough that is not too sticky/goopy. Remove from heat, and mix in food coloring and EO.
This makes for a great sensorial experience as well as fine motor!
It seriously smells soooo good!
Be sure to store in an air tight container or ziploc bag!
I made this for our Flowers unit we are doing and gave the kids flower shaped cookie cutters and foam stamps as well as a variety of other playdough tools.
You could also mix in dry lavender or fresh petals if you have some!
