Calming Lavender Scented Playdough - Lower Anxiety in Children [eBook]

September 10, 2016 by Kinetic Kids, Inc.


This particular playgough can be a part of a stress relief kit for a child with high anxiety, and need help to self-soothe.  The playdough makes a good sensory outlet for her and lavender is a calming scent. I chose purple because purple is supposed to be the most calming color. 


Lavender Scented Playdough Recipe:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
3 Tbsp. cream of tartar
1 Tbsp. lavender
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 cups water
purple food colouring
glitter (optional – I used purple)

Mix the dry ingredients including the lavender together in a pot and stir in the oil, water and food colouring. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, being sure to scrape the sides and bottom. Cook until dough forms a ball. Remove from heat. Place it on a piece of wax paper. Knead. If you are adding glitter, add it in at this point. Let cool. Store in an airtight container or in a resealable bag.
