Orange scented play dough

Now that school is back in sesh here, I have some one-on-one time with my little preschooler and am getting to do all the fun projects with her that are kind of hard with the other 3 around. Is it me or is play dough a scary activity to do with more than one kid anyway?! LOL!

This homemade play dough recipe stores well (it has lasted all summer long!) and doesn’t make your hands dry so it’s a definite keeper in our family plus, my 4-year old is loving how “orange-y” it smells! Note: Not edible! (;
