Homemade Peppermint Snowman Playdough

Soft Homemade Playdough scented with essential oils

Move over pricey stinky playdough! I know that the store bought store says "non-toxic", but I don't know what the heck is in there. And the smell turns my stomach. DIY playdough is not only super soft and cheap to make, but is non-toxic and safe (in case you have that kid, like me, who eats everything). You can even customize the scent to your liking. Best of all, you probably already have all the ingredients right there in your own home.

You will need:

Soft Homemade Playdough Scented with Essential Oils

  • 1 cup of flour (Amazon link)
  • 1/3 cup of salt (Amazon link )
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar (Amazon link )
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil {Amazon link}
  • 4-8 drops Young Living Peppermint essential oil (or scent of choice)
  • 1 cup water
  • Pint size wide mouth jar {Amazon link}
  • Felt, ribbon or material for scarf
  • Sharpie marker, cut vinyl, buttons, etc for snowman buttons
  • Snowman cookie cutter (optional){Amazon link}


Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and stir. Heat over med-high heat until the playdough thickens up a bit. This should just take a few minutes. Take off of stove and let cool. Knead in your essential oil.

This recipe will make enough to fill a 16oz jar. To decorate your jar, use a sharpie marker, some cut felt or even buttons for the snowman buttons. Then tie or glue some felt, ribbon or material around the lid for his scarf. Super fun and easy to make. Great for all the kiddos on your list. You can also add a cute cookie cutter for them to play with the dough.
