I love natural play things and open-ended play! I love watching my children create and “imaginate” (my own made up word!). I want to give them plenty of opportunities to do this and playdough is one of my favorite mediums.
The bonus here is that this chamomile tea playdough has a soothing smell that calms as your children play. Wouldn’t this be a great before-bedtime quiet activity?! (Have some dried lavender on hand? Put it in there too!) Or maybe a late-afternoon-so-you-can-keep-the-kids-calm-as-you-start-dinner activity? And the best part is that making this playdough is super simple so it can be ready in a matter of minutes!
And just look at it!
Because homemade playdough holds together so much better, you won’t have the mess that store-bought playdough often creates. That’s one reason I always suggest homemade playdough when moms are looking for a way to occupy their busy little ones.
