P is for Pomegranate Scented Playdough

It’s time for the letter P in the ABCs of Scented Playdough series!

This week we decided on pomegranate scented playdough!

I can hardly believe that we are already to the letter P!  It’s been a fun journey, exploring all these scents.  The hardest letters are coming up and I’m excited to share with you what I’ve chosen for them.

To make this fruity scented sensory dough, gather up:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • red food coloring
  • 5-6 drops of spiced pomegranate scented warming oil

Mix together the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a medium saucepan.  Place approximately 10 drops of food coloring in the water, then pour it into the saucepan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Once the dough starts to form, add the warming oil.  Continue to stir until it gets to the correct consistency.   Remove from heat and knead gently.

Now you’re ready for fun!

*Important Note: This playdough is NOT edible.  Do not allow your child to put it in their mouth.  Also, do not use more than a few drops of the oil.  It is highly fragranced, so you only need a little.  Wash your children’s hands after play.  

See you next week for the letter Q!
