How to make homemade apple scented playdough



STEP 1: Get your supplies ready



This apple scented playdough recipe is easy to make but you do need quite a few ingredients. Before starting to make your homemade playdough I would suggest getting all your ingredients measured out and have them ready alongside a large bowl, spoon and saucepan.


STEP 2: Add all the dry ingredients



Place all the dry ingredients in a medium size saucepan and mix them together. If you have eager toddlers and preschoolers they could help you tip in and stir the ingredients together.

STEP 3: Add all the wet ingredients



Next, add the water, oil, and food colouring into the saucepan and  mix all of the ingredients together well. I would suggest adding a lot of red food colouring if you want a nice bright red playdough.

STEP 4: Cook the playdough 



Cook the playdough mixture over a medium heat. You will need to  stir the mixture constantly for 4-5 minutes until it begins to form a ball. Once the ball of playdough has formed flatten your playdough, fold it, and continue to flip it for about another minute until all the stickiness is gone.

STEP 5: Leave to cool



Remove your apple scented playdough from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes. Once the playdough is cool enough to handle knead the playdough. If it’s still sticky then add a little bit of flour. If you cook it long enough then extra flour shouldn’t be needed!

STEP 6: Playtime!



Now for the fun part! Enjoy playing with your apple scented playdough!! You could use apple or leaf shaped cookie cutters to make shapes in the playdough, you could make apples by rolling the playdough into balls and adding small sticks as stems, or you could just enjoy squashing, squeezing and making patterns in the playdough. 

How much fun would this apple scented playdough be for a toddler or preschooler playdate this Autumn!
