I know it’s not officially fall just yet, but for most people September 1st marks the end of summer, and beginning of pumpkins, falling leaves and cooler weather!
I thought an apple craft would be fitting for September! I spotted some green apple flavoured juice crystals at Dollarama last week and thought it would make an awesome scent for play-doh!
Here’s how we made it!
Get a package of green apple flavoured juice crystals. This is the one we used:
In a bowl, or stand mixer fitted with dough hook, measure out:
- 2 1/4 cups Flour
- 1/2 cup Salt
- 2 tbsp Cream of tartar
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil (You don’t want to use a flavoured oil, such as coconut or olive. It will affect the scent of the playdoh)
Put on a kettle to boil water. In the meantime, open all the packages of the juice crystals and pour them into a measuring cup.
When the water is near boiling, measure out 1 1/2 cups in the same measuring cup as the juice crystals. The kids will love watching the white crystals magically turn green!
With the mixer running, slowly pour the water into the flour mixture. I needed to stop a few times to scrape the sides and ensure all the flour was being mixed in.
At this point, I wasn’t too keen on the colour. It wasn’t the bright green I envision when I think of green apples.
I added in about 10 drops of neon green food colouring. After the dough came together, I placed it on a lightly floured counter and kneaded it about 20 times to get the colour even.
And that’s that! It smells great! It’s really soft!
I feel even more ready for fall now that the apple activities are starting! Keep an eye out for more.
