Ms. Dana had several requests for her festive peppermint play dough recipe from her program “Sweet Scent of the Holidays” back in December. Try whipping up a batch for a fun afternoon with your little one sometime soon.
Here is the simple recipe she used:
To make candy cane play dough you will first want to make a batch of white peppermint play dough. We used our favorite no cook play dough recipe and then added peppermint essential oil, glitter, and red food coloring.
Peppermint Play Dough Recipe
- 2 cups of plain flour
- 1 cup of salt
- 3/4 cups of cold water
- 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
- 3-5 drops of peppermint extract or essential oil
In a bowl combine the flour and salt. Then add the other ingredients and mix well. Continue to knead until the play dough is formed. If the dough is a touch sticky add a bit of flour. If it is dry add a touch more water.
The recipe is easy to adapt to different scents or colors by changing the extract or essential oil.
