Sensory Play DIY Recipe – Herbal Play Dough


Play dough is beneficial to help strengthen little hands and get them ready for the pencil and scissor skills they’ll need in your homeschool. Together with herbs,with their own distinct smell, they work well to give kids a great sensory experience.

Here’s a great recipe you can use to create your own herbal play dough.

Sensory Play DIY Recipe – Herbal Play Dough


• 4 herbal tea bags of your choice (can use dry herbs of your choice, ie: lavender, chamomile flower,
• rosemary, anise seeds, basil, rose petals, etc.)
• 2 cups of water
• 2 cups white flour
• ½ cup of salt
• 4 tbsp cream of tartar
• 1 tbsp oil (my favorite is Coconut Oil)


Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and steep 4 tea bags for 10 minutes. Remove teabags.

Add flour, salt oil and cream of tartar. Stir over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until it forms a ball in the center of the pan.

Remove ball from pan and knead on lightly floured surface. Tear open tea bags and knead leaves into dough.

Store in an airtight container.
