Today we’re sharing a super simple and fun activity for the kids that is also great for practicing eye-hand coordination.

Germ Destroyer Plant Therapy Oils and Pom Poms Activity for Kids About Germs from @theartkit

We took our one-pot playdough recipe and added germ destroyer essential oil and put together a very simple activity for the kids. Read on to see how we put it all together.

What You’ll Need

What to Do

 We started by making a batch of our one-pot playdough. Once it had cooled down a bit, we added a few drops of food coloring, kneaded it until the color was incorporated, then added a couple drops of germ destroyer essential oil and kneaded it a bit more.

We then rolled out the playdough and sprinkled some pom poms on top. We then pressed the pom poms down a bit into the playdough so they wouldn’t roll away.

The kids then tweezed the  “germs” aka pom poms out of the playdough one by one and placed them in a bowl (or in our case, silicon cupcake liners).
