Christmas Play Dough

Making play dough is easy and I like this no-cook recipe. It creates a smooth, easy-to-store dough. The below recipe can be made with color, essential oils, and even glitter. For this one I used only Young Living Christmas Spirit essential oil blend. I used four to five drops and it has a nice light fragrance.



3 Cups of flour

1 Cup of salt

1 Cup of water (add food coloring if desired)

1/2 Cup of oil (I used vegetable and I added my essential oil blend directly to the oil)

Four to five drops of Young Living Christmas Spirit essential oil blend


Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add oil and water. Mix well. 



For storage: 

Store in an air tight container. A gallon size plastic bag works well. 

I hope you enjoy this play dough. It’s perfect for the holiday season. It’s quick and easy to whip up a batch. Give the kids cookie cutters, rollers, beads, etc. so they can mimic baking.



Happy Homemaking,
