Cold and Flu Playdough

Our house has just had a run of well runny noses. Even though I would like for the kids to lay in bed and rest, it never happens. It doesn’t matter how sick my children are they still have a “need” to play. I came up with this wonderful (Well, I think its wonderful) idea to pop essential oils into the play-dough so at least whilst they were playing it was doing them some good. Simply add a little tea tree oil and some Eucalyptus oil to create a sinus clearing tactile medicine. Believe it or not but this one is good for older kids too.

      2 cups of plain flour
      4 tablespoons of cream of tartar
      2 tablespoons of cooking oil
      1 cup of salt
      2 cups of boiling water
      Food coloring
      2 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
                  1 drop of Tea Tree Essential Oil
