It is time for this month’s dough post to go with 12 Months of Sensory Dough Series.
We love play recipes! I love making them and the kids love playing and exploring with them. It is a win win for us. This month I really wanted to make rose dough. I sought out rose oil and almost passed out at the price tag, lol. I finally found one I could afford and placed an order for it. However, it is on back order. I still really wanted to make rose dough. I set out to the dollar tree to see what I could find that might be rose scented to try and use. The only thing I saw was rose Epsom salts. So here went nothing. I purchased the Epsom salt and headed home to see if I could, or how I would, whip this into a dough.
Epsom Salt Rose Dough
What I used/ supplies :
cream of tartar
cornstarch (corn flour uk)
pink gel food coloring
How to make:
I took my white playdough recipe and adapted it to this epsom salt rose dough. I left the table salt out and added a cup of epsom salts. I know they are not the same! I had my table salt on the counter waiting to see what would happen. I poured all the ingredients into the pan and cooked on med high heat. I stirred for a few minutes and I did not think it was going to thicken up. I added 1/2 cup of table salt to the pan. I continued to stir. After a few minutes it started to firm up. When the dough was sticking to my spoon I pulled it out and set it on a plate to cool. As you can see above on the right I pulled the dough from the pan on the spoon. Once the rose dough cooled I kneaded it to form a pretty ball and then flattened it out a bit. Now we had Epsom Salt Rose Dough. It smelled amazing and I loved that the epsom salt gave it a crystal texture.
I set the kids up with a simple invitation to play. I placed the rose dough on a heart tray. I added cut up paper straws and I could not find any fresh roses I liked at the store that am, so I gave them rose soap petals to play with. Simple yet fun. They used the straws to build with the playdough and made flowers with them too. After playing a little while they starting throwing balls of playdough at each other. Oh boy oh boy, I love these guys. Another fun afternoon at my house. I can not wait to get this out again. To store just seal in a ziploc bag.
