I am so excited to be working with Macmillan Children’s Books to share with you this edible playdough recipe! Firstly, because Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet are two of my favourite people when it comes to childrens books. Yes, my kids love them too (Supertato is crazy popular here) but I’m normally the one reading and it’s their books I go to first as well. Secondly because to celebrate the launch of their new book Cake we’ve been making some birthday cake themed edible playdough and it smelt sooooo good! I had my daughter on hand as product tester and she had a great time with this – I hope your kids love it just as much!
Over the years we’ve shared a lot of sensory play ideas for kids and there’s one thing that’s always super popular with my kids – playdough. Our calming lavender playdough is one of the most popular posts we’ve ever shared (and my kids loved it) so today I thought I’d share this zesty lemon playdough recipe, perfect for the summer or whenever you need a bit of a citrus-y pickup!
Do you kids go slightly crazy during the school holidays? Mine do, they love having the opportunity to do lots of fun stuff but the change in routine can really get to them too and after a little while they can get a little…wild. After we returned from the park last week and they turned into The Loudest Kids On The Planet I got them to make this lavender playdough. They were happy because they got to make something fun and they love playdough, I was happy because it worked and they actually calmed down for a while. Result.
We love hands on fun and you can find over 40 of our favourite sensory play ideas for kids here and all our activities for toddlers here or keep reading for a little round up of our favourite scented play dough recipes!
