Here is Aprils's installment of the 12 Months of Sensory Dough Series! Each month 11 fellow bloggers and I will share with you our playtime adventures with dough. Last month was Edible Play Dough. This month we're making Scented Dough!
2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tbsp baking powder
1 cup water
1 tbsp oil
essential oils (peppermint, lavender, lemon...) or vanilla extract
Pour the flour, salt, baking powder, water, and oil into a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together. If needed, add a little extra flour or water until the dough reaches the desired consistency. If you are going to make dough with multiple scents like we did, separate it out into smaller bowls. Add a few drops of essential oil or vanilla extract to each bowl. We even added a few drops of food coloring to match the scent with an appropriate color. (Example: We added yellow food coloring to the dough being scented with lemon essential oil.) Blend the oils, extract, and/or food coloring into the dough. Once your dough has reached the desired consistency, scent, and color, it's time to hand it over to the kids for some sensory fun!
