We took our one pot playdough recipe and added Nighty Night 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

Homemade playdough

Nighty Night essential oil (this is the brand we use and recommend)

Food coloring

Mini rolling pin (we have two rolling pins and this is our favorite-it’s just like a real rolling pin but for smaller hands)

Mini stars

Playdough accessories

What to Do

 We started by making a double batch of our one pot playdough. Once it had cooled down a bit, we added a few drops of blue food coloring, kneaded it until the color was incorporated, then added a couple drops of Nighty Night essential oil and kneaded it a bit more. Ahh, sleep is almost here now. 😉

We then dug through our playdough basket and picked out all of the blue objects and nighttime related items (no reason in particular but we thought we’d use this as a fun color activity for the kids as well as sensory).

The kids enjoyed making impressions in the playdough and making smiley face cookies.
