Strawberry Scented Play Dough Recipe

BY ON Dec 11, 2011


Strawberry Scented Play Dough is a basic play dough recipe with added strawberry essence and chocolate sprinkles to imitate that of real strawberries.


What you will need? 

1 cup plain flour

1 Tablespoon oil

200ml Water

50ml Strawberry Essence

½ cup salt

¼ cup chocolate sprinkles

2 Teaspoons cream of tartar

1 Teaspoon of rose pink food colouring

How you make it?

  1. Pour all dry ingredients, flour, salt and cream of tartar together in a saucepan.
  2. Add oil, food colouring, strawberry essence and water to dry ingredients.
  3. I use a whisk before heating as I find this helps remove lumps and blends the ingredients.
  4. Cook over medium heat constantly stirring until it becomes a thick blob.
  5. Then turn out onto a clean surface and knead into a smooth blob.
  6. Allow the play dough to cool before kneading in the chocolate sprinkles.
  7. Store in a plastic zip lock bag or air tight container.

Other Tips: 

  • If the play dough is too warm the chocolate sprinkles will melt.
  • I also found that warm hands melted some of the chocolate sprinkles during playing with it.  I had some in chocolate sprinkles in a small bowl to add to the play dough during play time.
