Mindful/Peaceful Playdough

I designed this Multi-Sensory PlayDough Basket to encourage peace, tranquility, and mindfulness through creative hands on play and exploration.

Children can use the mortar and pestle to grind the calming dried lavender and chamomile and then add their mix to the dough for texture and scent. I have also included laminated identification cards depicting the herb as both a plant and dried to extend literacy and language.

The flower press doubles as a round cutter and represents new beginnings, balance and harmony. The hummingbird symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability, lightness of being, enjoyment of life, being present, independence, and lifting up negativity. Together the flower and humming bird represent the delicate symbiotic relationship in nature, each relying on each other to survive.

The wooden heart press is simply symbolic of love.

I often bring this set out during quiet time in the afternoon or in the evening before bed.
I have also included four tools for cutting and shaping the dough and a small wooden rolling pin. These tools will help develop hand strength, fine motor skills, and coordination, You will also receive 8 oz Homemade PlayDough in an air tight container and the recipe.

Each set also includes a recipe card so that you can remake the play dough at home! Try this on a cool day and enjoy kneading the warm dough!

We bought three of the play dough kits because we wanted a wide variety of tools and with multiple kiddos, we were happy to have extra tools! We absolutely love all three kits! They came with a recipe card so I can make more dough when needed and the tools and accessories are wonderful! My kiddos especially love the mortar and pestle and it never occurred to me to add spices to my play dough but it is such a great addition!!

My sons love this dough set! I caught them working together to make hummingbird shaped cookies. I got a 40 minute break the first time they used it! Thank you!
