Strange confession

30 08 2011

Here’s a strange confession. I’ve recently discovered that I love sniffing playdough. Weird, right? Let me explain.

For DD’s birthday her Nanny gave her some art supplies. Part of that art booty was some playdough. Not the homemade kind, the Hasbro kind. Which means it came scented. Like vanilla.

When we opened the playdough up, the scent literally overwhelmed me and I couldn’t resist sniffing it. Right away, it took me back to when I was little.

I guess that’s why ever since then I can’t stop sniffing it?

All I know is when DD says she wants ‘playdough’ I get a little giddy inside.

Here are some photos of our recent playdough fun. For your sake and mine, there are no ‘sniffing’ photos in the bunch. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think it's a taco.

A massacred Angry Bird?

I found this recipe for making homemade playdough but haven’t tried to do it myself. Have you made homemade playdough before?

I made some just a few weeks ago. I bet if you want to make it scented you could throw some essential oils in. I love making mine homemade, brings back memories of my childhood.

Hi Alicia,

Yes, I think I’ll try making some homemade. It’ll be a fun craft project. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our playgroup always has the homemade dough. Seems to work very well. Don’t know what recipe they use though. Not really a fan of the smell of Playdough myself. Love the smell of Silly Putty though.
