It is not only calming, but it promotes fine motor development too. Through experiencing different textures of slime or playdough, both count as wonderful sensory and learning experiences for children.

๐ŸŒ  As your child shapes the playdough into a ball or a snake, they’re thinking creatively. The squeezing, pinching and pulling movements also strengthen your child’s hand muscles and develop fine motor skills. Imagine all the shapes, letters and stories they can build in the most exciting way, supported by amazing scents mixed in this entire experience!

HOW TO MAKE ESSENTIAL OIL PLAY DOUGH

  • 1. Place the water and olive oil into a medium pot on the stove. Simmer on medium heat while you prepare your dry ingredients.
  • 2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar. Whisk until incorporated.
  • 3. Add half of the dry mixture into the pot with your water and oil. Whisk for 5 seconds to incorporate, then add the second half of the dry mixture into the pot.
  • 4. Whisk continuously on medium heat until the mixture is smooth and lump free, about 15โ€“30 seconds.
  • 5. Once the mixture becomes slightly thicker, switch to using a wooden spoon or silicone spatula to continue to stir and knead it. Keep stirring to avoid burning the dough. Be patient. The mix will take around 2โ€“3 minutes of constant stirring and kneading until it takes on a play dough-like consistency.
  • 6. Once you have a thick, doughy consistency, remove the dough from the pot and place it onto a clean surface.
  • 7. Let cool for 5 minutes, then knead the dough for 1 minute.
  • 8. Split into 4โ€“6 equal pieces.
  • 9. Add your coloring and essential oils to one piece at a time, then knead until fully incorporated. Repeat with different colors and oils in the other sections of dough. Wear gloves during this step to avoid staining your hands.
  • 10. Bring on the fun!

Let your children help with the steps that are appropriate for their age. This will make the DIY activity feel even more special and fun.

HOMEMADE ESSENTIAL OIL SLIME

Ingredients you’ll need

4 ounces non-toxic white glue
ยฝ teaspoon baking soda
1โ€“2 tablespoons multipurpose sterile solution (contact solution)
KidScent GeneYus essential oil
Natural food coloring (optional)

KIDSCENT GENEYUS

KidScents GeneYus can be diffused or used topically to create a sharp, fresh environment that is great while children work on schoolwork and projects. Formulated specifically to meet the needs of children, this premium essential oil blend is soothing when used topically with massage and adds an excellent aroma to create productive, positive atmospheres. With grounding Frankincense and calming Cedarwood, alongside other botanicals, KidScents GeneYus is excellent to diffuse when children need to re-center during homework time.

Instructions

  • 1. Add glue to a bowl.
  • 2. Add food coloring if youโ€™re working with colors.
  • 3. Mix in baking soda until smooth.
  • 4. Add 1 tablespoon contact solution and mix slowly. The glue mixture will start to become stringy as it hardens to form a ball.
  • 5. Pick up the mixture and knead with your hands until it becomes smooth. If it remains too slimy and wonโ€™t come together, add ยฝ tablespoon of contact solution at a time until it is smooth.
  • 6. Add up to 8 drops of essential oil and mix until combined. If the aroma is too potent, use less oil.
  • 7. Get playing! Set out placemats or parchment paper to keep things from getting too messy.

Even if youโ€™re having a blast, remember that this slime was made for the kiddos, so be sure to use essential oils* that are formulated especially for little hands like the KidScentsยฎ line:
