We put Atlas down for a nap, and this big boy played playdough for
Atlas had a full nap and then joined the fun. Otto built walls, dinosaurs, and did a little baking/mixing in the end. I couldn't believe how intensely and how long he played!
We have been using this playdough recipe, found here:

The last time I made this recipe, I tried to add a scent to it using tea water, but it didn't really work, so I tried adding some almond extract. I had to add quite a bit to get even a faint scent. Have you tried adding scent to your playdough? Update: We now regularly scent our playdough with essential oils. A few drops does the trick, worked in after we warm it over the stove. We've tried citrus oils - lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange, and we also love lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint. The boys love choosing their color and scent, and will help to work it in, kneading it like bread dough. So fun!
