Mint Playdough

All children love playdough. Why not make your own delicious smelling mint playdough using fresh mint that you can grow in your own garden? Adding fresh mint into playdough will extend your child’s sensory play. They can also get involved in growing the mint, for example, watering it every day, and measuring the size of the plant.

To make the playdough you will need:

2 cups plain flour
1 cup salt
2 tbsp oil
4 tbsp cream of tartar
2 cups boiling water (infused with mint)
10 drops of green food colouring

Measuring out ingredients is a good way to practice counting with your child. Put the ingredients into a large bowl and combine well. Once combined kneed the dough to distribute the food colouring. Finally let your child enjoy playing with delicious smelling playdough!
