My little ones love playdough and had been begging me for quite some time to make some.
I went to make some the other day and realised that I was out of the cheap home brand salt I use for playdough, so it had to wait until I went shopping.
I also picked up some food colouring and a couple of essences I use in cooking that I saw while I was in the aisle.
This gave me an idea.
I decided to make some fragrant playdough.
To the green I added peppermint essence, to the purple I added rosewater and to the orange I added lemon and orange essences.
I found it better to add the essence after it was cooked and during the knead I like to give it once it is slightly cool and just before I pop it into a zip lock bag.
The little ones thought it was great fun.
