hyacinth play dough


I had a debate last night over whether or not something could smell “beautiful.” I say it can, especially after making this hyacinth-scented play dough. I used this gluten free play dough recipe, and added neon pink food coloring and hyacinth-scented essential oil. I love this play dough recipe — the consistency is wonderful, and it’s super soft. I put it out with some skewers and floral foam as a provocation, but I let the kids explore as they wished.


Some made flowers [above], but this guy told me he made a water tower with pipes. How cool!  I see a future exploration for our water table :)

  1. Great idea to put the hyacinth essential oil in! Last time we made it, I didn’t like the vinegar smell, so I’ll have to look for an essential oil to put in. We’re definitely due some play dough play time, I better pick up ingredients! Looks like you all had fun :)

  2. I love it! And I think your blog is a great idea for both you and parents—it’s nice to see images of exactly what a water tower with pipes looks like!
