Our favourite play dough recipe

Our favourite play dough recipe ♡

Have you ever wanted that perfect textured play dough?
My 4.5 year old and I made our favourite recipe and thought we would share with you.


Mix together
2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of salt
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of cel mix
2 cups of boiling water
Food colouring of choice
2-3 drops of Essential oils (We used Protection blend by Lively Living which we will be stocking very soon)

Our secret ingredient is the cel mix which gels the play dough together nicely creating that extra soft consistency. You may also like to leave your play dough natural without the food colouring and add herbs and flowers instead creating another fun experience and activity for your little earthling to explore and find.

This recipe is so soft and will last a good 2 months and if you store in the fridge it can last slightly longer depending on how many little hands are using the play dough of course.

Play dough is fun, its easy to make and usually the making process is the children’s favourite part! Enjoy the process together and get mixing!
