Fairy Playdough Recipe

8 tbsp plain flour

2  tbsp table salt

60ml warm water

Drizzle of oil

Dried lavender / dried rose buds.


All you need to do is mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl, then add some of the water bit by bit until it comes together to form a dough. Knead for a few minutes until it is smooth pliable dough, and then finish off with your choice of dried flowers. We include dried lavender and Rose Buds in many of Fairy Garden kits.

The Fairy Playdough is such a fun indoor activity – smells nice, looks pretty and soft and squishy. Fun on lots of levels.

You could extend the life of the scented play dough by adding some essential oils.

We hope you and your little ones use our Fairy Playdough recipe soon. It’s a great activity for this February half term when we can’t guarantee the weather for some outdoor fun.
