I know in my household, late afternoon can be a real struggle. Especially when it comes to hangry, emotional toddlers and young kids. It always seems to happen when you need two hands to cook dinner. For me, juggling a small baby and a toddler while making dinner is a nightmare. That was, until I started making my own Child Calming Play Dough!Child Calming Remedy is a Certified Organic essential oil blend by Lively Living, designed specifically with children in mind. It uses 4 oils that are known to calm children (and adults) and restore emotional balance. Come late afternoon, when I need to be cooking dinner, I pull out our Child Calming Play Dough and let my toddler play, whilst allowing the Child Calming Remedy to help with her emotions. Not only do I know that she is getting the benefits of the essential oil, I know that it is kid safe and organic and is not made of any harmful additives or synthetic fragrance that always flares up her eczema. \nHOMEMADE PLAYDOUGH RECIPE:\n\n2 Cups of Flour\n2 Tbsp of Oil (any oil will do, coconut oil, vegetable oil, even olive oil)\n1\/2 Cup of Salt\n2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar\n1 1\/2 Cup Boiling Water\nGel food colouring \nseveral drops of Child Calming Remedy\n\n\n- Pour flour into a bowl\nAdd 1\/2 cup of sald\nMix in Cream of Tartar\nAdd your oil (we used vegetable oil)\nPour in boiling water\nMix together until dough ball forms (let cool)\nRoll out the dough and add your gel food colouring and drops of Child Calming Remedy\nUse gloves and knead the dough until colouring is all mixed through\n\nStore in an air tight container or zip lock bag between uses! \n \nGet your Child Calming Remedy here!
