X is for Xtra Peppermint Basil Scented Playdough

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

This week was hard! X is a rather elusive letter when you want to find something that has a pleasant aroma and begins with it! I brainstormed for quite some time and finally caved to just using the word X-tra. I know, I know, but humor me, will you? 😉

I decided to we dug our hands into some x-tra peppermint basil scented playdough.

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil (I use olive oil)
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Throw together the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a saucepan.  Add the water, oil, peppermint extract, and basil.  Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly.

 Continue to stir until it gets to the correct doughy consistency.   Remove from heat and knead gently.

Allow to cool and then play!

Next week, the letter Y!
