Easy Homemade Herbal Playdough Recipe

We all have fond memories of playing with playdough as a child, so many amazing things you can create.
Give us a can of playdough and a newspaper and we would be busy for hours.
Now you can share those memories with your children and grandchildren with just a couple of ingredients from your kitchen.
This is a Easy Homemade Herbal Playdough Recipe that can be ready for play in less than 10 minutes.

Playdough Ingredients- What’s Inside?

This is the day and age where ingredients can be scary, especially for our children.
I believe in product transparency. If a product isn’t willing to share what’s inside, then I’m not willing to buy it.

Why should you care what’s in Playdough?
Because what touches the skin goes into the body.
When you make your own homemade playdough, you know exactly what goes into it.

I love this recipe because, it is so easy to make, my kids can make it with a little supervision and I always have all the ingredients on hand.
The essential oil(s) in this recipe can add many benefits to the playdough.
I am using lavender, which is calming and relaxing; A perfect combo if your child is hyper or almost ready for nap time.
If you will be outside when you’re using the playdough, you can use other herbs such as lemongrass to help keep biting insects away.
