Peppermint Playdough

Here is a perfect activity to get you in the holiday spirit.  Nothing says holiday to me more than the fresh scents of pine and peppermint.  I am sure your child will love the unique scent too.  You can also experiment with other extracts, if you desire.

Yields: 3.5 cups
Duration: 10 minutes

Materials Needed:
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 4 teaspoons cream of tarter
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 4 tablespoons peppermint extract
  • red food coloring

  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients together.  Stir until the dough pulls away from inside the bowl
  2. Divide the dough into 2 balls and knead the red food coloring into one ball
  3. Show your child how to twist and blend the two colors together.
