Things have been crazy around here with that wind storm. I just finally found some time to sit down and get this typed up. Have you ever wondered how to make Play Dough? It could not be simpler. I have shared how to make some fun Kool-Aid Flavored Play Dough and Pumpkin Spice Play Dough. Well, since it is Christmas time, I decided we needed to make some Peppermint Play Dough. So I fiddled with the recipe a bit and came up with a recipe for some yummy smelling Peppermint Play Dough.
Peppermint Play Dough Recipe
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
- 1 Tablespoon Peppermint Oil Extract
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup water
Mix flour, salt, & cream of tartar in a medium cooking pot.
Add water, peppermint extract and oil.
Stir over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes stirring constantly.
When mixture forms a ball in pot, remove.
Knead until smooth.
Play and explore with this fragrant, brightly colored dough as you would any play dough.
Put in a plastic bag and refrigerate to store.
A great way to entertain the kids during Christmas break. Or a great gift for a neighbor, classmates or friends. It is so easy to make and is the softest (non sticky) Play Dough recipe I have ever used. I like it better than the store bought stuff…plus…it smells amazing!! And if you are feeling extra festive…throw in a handful of red glitter to give it some fun sparkle!
And, in the spirit of giving, I have provided you with a free printable Peppermint Play Dough label for the tops of your jars or Tupperware containers to label it for a gift. The labels are 3 inch circles. If you need them smaller you can simply print the label smaller than 100% to get the size you need.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I would love to hear from those of you who are planning on making some for yourself or who plan on gifting it. 19 more sleeps till Christmas…but who’s counting!!
