My three year old grandson loved this project. It did require lots of adult help but we were able to enjoy the process three different times and he returned to it several times each day to enjoy it. The fragrances were subtle and he wasn’t tempted to taste them!


Clayton loved the dough. He loved playing with it and his dump truck.


So much fun, my son loved mixing the colors.
