Festive-Scented Play-dough for Fall
This morning I woke up early and got stuck into my housework. Before breakfast, my shower and the Kindy run I had the whole house vacuumed, the bathroom sparkling and a load of washing on. Autumn weather fills me with energy.
Upon return to a shiny empty house I was inspired to do something for the kids. I remembered making festive scented play dough with Mini Eco a couple of years ago. I thought I'd try an autumn version - pumpkin pie and hot chocolate.
Above you can see I am attempting to color and scent the cooked dough with saffron for color and a combination of ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg for scent. It smells divine but it's not overpowering. For the chocolate I simply added cocoa powder to the mix and then kneaded in some vanilla essence as Kate suggests in her recipe.
I think my kids will be very happy when they get home. In the meantime I can play with it myself. Who doesn't love play dough?
