How to Make Homemade Playdough...
While we are home with the kids for the rest of the school year many parents are looking for fun, crafty, and educational activities to help fill the schedule and keep kids happy. Even when we're not in these unusual times, I'm always on the look out for activities that offer a healthy break from watching TV, Netflix shows, or general time on screens. It's important to be aware that although technology has many benefits and can be helpful, unlimited screen time may be harmful to children and adults so it is our job to provide engaging alternatives. Of course, I'm here to help!
I thought this homemade playdough recipe would be a great morning or afternoon project to get the kids involved and help you fill their schedule at home. Going outside to play and explore is always a healthy way to spend free time but even the spring time is unpredictable with weather. I have found that having this homemade playdough recipe saved in my back pocket has been helpful when we are stuck indoors!
Not only will your kids have fun actually having a hand in making their own homemade playdough from scratch using the these household ingredients, everyone may also receive the benefits of aromatherapy while smashing, rolling, and creating once the playdough is made by adding a few essential oils to the mix!
