You wouldn’t want your gluten-free kids playing with loaves of whole wheat bread so you probably don’t want them playing with Play-Doh either. Play-Doh is a lot of fun but unfortunately it and many of the other dough and clay products out there are made with flour and therefore aren’t suitable for kids, or clay loving adults, with a gluten allergy or celiac disease.
Making your own gluten-free clay from scratch is one option. Another is Mama K’s Aromatic Play Clay, created by a mom for her three-year old son. She wanted to find something for him to play and create with but without the artificial ingredients.
Mama K’s Play Clay is made from a mix of certified gluten-free flour, olive oil, vegetable colorants and pure essential oils. Available in seven delightful scents, it’s great for adults as well as kids. Each scent uses essential oils and aromatherapy to help with relaxation, calming and anxiety.
Lavender, Bergamot, Lemongrass, Geranium, Sweet Orange, Cardamom,
Chamomile. Each flavor smells amazing, almost good enough to eat, and really does aid relaxation when you mold the soft clay in your hands and enjoy it’s sweet aromas.
As well being 100% gluten-free, all of Mama K’s clays are soy, rice and dairy-free. Perfect for creative kids with allergies or intolerances.
