This week both my kids have been ill so while my daughter slept it off I wanted to do a simple activity with my son that he could still enjoy while feeling a bit under the weather. He adores playdoh so I thought that this rose scented playdough might be a fun introduction to making our own scented ones.

What you will need:
500ml plain flour
120ml hot water
Red or pink food colouring
Rose food flavouring (I used Tescos)
How to make your Rose Scented Playdough:
Put the hot water in a bowl, then add a small amount of the scent (it’s strong!) and colouring.
Add the flour and salt and mix it all together. If your dough is a bit sticky add some more flour and this should sort it out.
As luck would have it, we’d just read Elmer and Rose. If you saw my round up of Elmer crafts and activities you’ll know that we love Elmer so this was an excuse to turn this into another Elmer activity for us too! I split the dough into three parts and added more colouring to the second two so our dough could get pinker just like Rose does! It would be fun to play with elephant cutters with this or to make it into elephant shapes!
Have you tried making scented play dough? What scents do you like?
