Peppermint Play Dough Recipe

peppermint-play-dough-1Ms. 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.
