Sensory Play Dough

DIY PlaydoughWhenever I’m at a social gathering, reining in my 2-year-old son is always a challenge! He is so full of energy and loves exploring everywhere we go. So I’m always on a prowl for something will entertain him and also won’t make a giant mess that has to be cleaned up a few minutes later. I found an awesome DIY play dough that’s completely natural (so it’s non-toxic) that he absolutely loves to play with!

Sensory Play
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup warm water
5 drops lemon essential oil
Food coloring (optional)
Glitter (optional)

How to Make It
Mix the flour, salt, and cream of tartar.
Add water, essential oil, and food coloring and mix well.
Knead in your glitter.
Store this great toy in an air-tight container or in a zip lock bag to play with any time!

Because it’s such a sensory experience, this entertains my son for so long! He loves it and I’m not afraid of him accidentally eating it or making a mess. Such a great DIY to make for your kids; whether you’re heading to church, a reunion, or any other type of gathering. Try it out and let me know what you think!
