Lavender Play Dough

I've been planning this for a while and finally got around to making it this week.  I made purple play dough to which I added lavender oil before cooking.  Once cooked, I split it into 2, left one half plain and added some dried lavender to the other half to add more aroma and texture. 

It was a great idea in theory, a nice calming and relaxing play at the table.....unfortunately I forgot to add the cream of tartar so we ended up with an immensely sticky mess - not so relaxing!!!

 I'm going to make some more though as I do think it's a great way to use essential oils with the boys.
