Invitation To Create: Jasmine Tea Playdough

I'm so excited to be joining in with  12 Months of Sensory Dough Recipes where several bloggers get together to share the exciting sensory dough recipes and a variety of twists and turns! It is our hope that you will have a one-stop resource for all things Sensory dough! This months sensory dough recipes feature Scented Dough!
If you're a regular reader you'll know how much I love scented playdough! This month though, rather than just make a scented playdough and present it to the girls as an invitation to play I decided to present them with an invitation to create playdough-an opportunity to explore how playdough is made.

Plain playdough
Ice cubes
Frozen oil
Jasmine tea leaves
Plain flour
Rice flour

How to Play:
I simply placed all the ingredients in a dip tray and invited Bubbles to explore. As she felt each component we talked about what it was and how it helped make playdough. 
She had fun simply exploring the textures and smells of each item before eventually piling them all on and massaging them in to the playdough to make one big ball of jasmine playdough.
Squiggles joined in too with a few items placed on her high chair tray-she wasn't too sure about the cold texture of the oil and water though.

Now for the fun part…
Would you call this recipe and activity a success or a fail? Would you try this recipe or have you tried another? We want to see! You can share pictures to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Google+. Tag your pictures with #ilovesensorydough.
Be sure to check out each blogger, as we will each provide a different take on the dough, some of us with have the BEST recipe ever, while others (probably me) will show you our attempts (both failed and successful).
