Vanilla Cinnamon Scented Play Dough

Vanilla Cinnamon Scented Play Dough
Toddlers just love play dough! It's squishy and soft, and is a wonderful sensory experience for little hands. A great way to add to this is by adding scent to the dough.

This easy no cook play dough has vanilla and cinnamon mixed through, and smells amazing!

You can add a few drops of food colouring if you like, but if you leave it plain then you can see the swirls of cinnamon through the dough, which looks pretty neat.

This quick and easy recipe uses just four ingredients, plus the scents. You will have play dough ready to go within a few minutes!


  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder


Mix salt and flour together in a large bowl.

Add water, oil, and vanilla. Mix together to form a dough. If it seems too sticky, add a little more flour. If it seems too crumbly, add a little more oil.

Add cinnamon powder and kneed it through. By adding the cinnamon at the end, you will get a light brown swirl effect through the dough. If you prefer a more uniform colour, mix the cinnamon in with the salt and flour at the beginning.
