It's that stuff that gets under your fingernails, on the floor, in the mouth, hair, and with it, one could be capable of creating a "masterpiece." What is this magical compound? It's a simple compound that was originally used to clean wallpaper, but has provided hours of entertainment and creative expression by many. I'm pretty sure you've guessed Play Doh by now and with adults, there are many views on if it is a blessing or curse.
At a recent baby shower, this compound was used to challenge attendees to "create" a baby. After viewing a few, I didn't even try.

The Kiddos I watch are a young crowd, but they are now old enough to play with playdoh without first wanting to eat it. I've got some old Play-Doh, but it's getting a little tough, so I decided to make it. After a little searching on Pinterest, I found this recipe that I don't have to cook or spend a ton of money on and I could use my Young Living Essential Oils on. Although it said to mix it all in a bowl, I knew I could do it easier and faster in my food processor and it was a cinch! I made three batches using EO that would be great for the kids (calming and happy) :
- Stress Away and Green gel type food coloring from Wilton
- Peace & Calming with Blue gel food coloring
- Lavender with Purple gel food coloring
I did decrease the recipe because I wanted to make several small batches for color and smell. First batch was perfect with consistency and color, the next two I had to play with adding a little extra few drops of water to make it kid approved texture. Yes, I'm serious when I say that. Each time I would hand it to "K", he would say "oh, bad, more mixing!" After we were done playing, I put each in some small old Tuperware containers I had that would keep it air tight.
Beyond that, they had a great time and loved the texture, smell, and fun!
