Today we made Essential Oil Playdough!

Today we made essential oil playdough woot woot! We mixed all the ingredients thoroughly then cooked over medium heat until it started to ball together but still looked moist. Took it out plopped it on my counter, added the essential oils and worked them in a bit. Then let it cool a bit before handing it off to my kiddos to run and play with them! Stored some for later in air tight containers! Check out the video way at the bottom to see the consistency!
