    I am definitely going to give this recipe a try! I made a different one the other day and it was a complete fail…so I'm glad to see that this one looks soft and super easy to shape. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes do, it was really easy to make and the results were awesome. I made another batch (but unscented this time) a few days ago and it also turned out really well. Hope yours does too!

    Seriously Danya, I must admit that I didn't even know that play dough is something you can actually make! Love the fact that you put rose water too! And, I like the changes you have made on your blog.
    My parents are back to Canada and I’m catching up on blogging this week. I also thought I stop by to wish you a very Happy New Year 2014 to you and your family filled with everything you want and love! All the best!

      I always thought that homemade play dough would be rubbish compared to the store bought variety – but honestly this batch turned out even better. It's like a light bulb has gone off in my head and I think I'll be making this stuff all the time now. 🙂 Thanks for your comments about my blog changes. I'm in the process of moving from blogger to wordpress (something you did last year from memory) and whilst I haven't gotten everything right yet, I feel like I'm on the right track. Such a lovely long break you've had with your parents (perfect time of year for them to visit too!). I know it's hard for you being away from them, and I hope you had a lovely time together. Very very very happy 2014 to you too! xx Danya

      Thanks Penny! We haven't really done very many scented activities before, and I loved watching JJ smell the play dough and really use that extra sense.

    What lovely playdough, Danya, and I adore those cookie cutters, where are they from?

    • Danya Banya

      Thanks Christie! The cookie cutters were bought about a year ago from Victoria's Basement. I have a set of 5 star ones too.

  15. Beautiful pics, Danya! I gave up on homemade playdough because it always went slimy and gross, but I'll give that recipe a shot. I love the idea of adding scent, my kids love vanilla or maybe I should put something really soothing to keep them quiet, lol!

      This isn't slimy at all. We played with ours loads and loads, and it only got gross in so much that it started to become full of gumnuts and crumbs – but the actual play dough texture stayed fine. Vanilla would make great play dough ice cream! And I'm sure you could add essential oils (although be careful that they are not toxic if consumed because kids do sometimes eat bits of playdough…)
