Sweet Apple Scented Play Dough Recipe


Sweet Apple Scented Play Dough is a beautiful textured play dough that smells just like an apple, adding to the wonderful sensory play experience.  The apple scent comes from adding apple fragrant shampoo to a basic play dough recipe.  The shampoo creates a soft and smooth the play dough feel soft and smooth and great for manipulating.


What you will need?

Sweet Apple Scented Play Dough Ingredients


1 Cup Plain Flour

2 Tablespoons Oil

200ml Water

50ml Apple Fragrant Shampoo

½ Cup Salt

2 Teaspoons Cream of Tartar

Red Food Colouring (continue to add until desired colour is achieved)


How to make it?

  • Pour all dry ingredients, flour, salt and cream of tartar together in a saucepan.
  • Add oil, shampoo, colouring and water to dry ingredients.
  • I use a whisk before heating as I find this helps remove lumps and blends the ingredients well.
  • Cook over medium heat constantly stirring until it becomes a thick blob.
  • Then turn out onto a clean surface and knead into a smooth ball. Be careful the play dough will be very hot!
  • Allow the play dough to cool before playing kneading in the flower petals.
  • Store in a plastic zip lock bag or air tight container.


Tip: If the play dough turns out stick, sprinkle a small amount of plain flour onto the bench and knead until smooth and combined.
