I am a mom of three boys.  They think this is HILARIOUS.  If you don’t like joking about poop, don’t worry, I have included a non-poop version of my printable for Leprechaun Poop Green Play Dough!!

Leprechaun Poop Green Play Dough Recipe Free Printable


Have you ever made your own play dough?  It is so easy and SO INEXPENSIVE.  When your kids love to play with this stuff, making your own is the way to go.  Last year I shared my Carrot Orange Play Dough Recipe.  This is a perfect idea for non candy Easter Basket fillers!  Well when I went to make a batch of green stuff, I was out of 2 of the ingredients that I used in my Orange Recipe.  I had to improvise and I am delighted to share this additional recipe as well!

The orange version called for vegetable oil and Kool-Aid Packets.  I was out of both and so I substituted Coconut Oil + Food Coloring and it worked just as well.  I also think the coconut oils is amazing for your skin!  Bonus!

Leprechaun Poop Green Play Dough-2

Ingredients for Leprechaun Poop Green Play Dough:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 4 teaspoons Cream of Tarter
  • 2 Cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil*
  • 15-20 drops of green food coloring
  • 15-20 drops of your favorite Essential Oil

*I used fractionated coconut oil (liquid at room temperature).  If you do not have this simply melt regular solid coconut oil

Start out with your flour, salt and cream of tarter in a small sauce pan.  Add your coconut oil and water to the dry ingredients and mix well.  Add 15-20 drops of green food coloring.  I wanted it to be GREEN!

It looks like this in your sauce pan.  I asked on my Instagram account if anyone had any guesses and most thought it was melted chocolate!

Stir this over medium heat until it comes together into a giant ball.

Remove from the pan and when it is cool to touch, add your essential oils and knead it smooth.  I found mine darkened as it cooled!  I added some Stress Away to this batch.  Any help on chilling my small people is always welcome {wink}  Stress Away is part of the Premium Starter Kit as well!

I picked up these inexpensive containers at my Dollar Tree.  4 left over containers for $1 and they have the perfect green lid.  I made some printables and applied them to the containers.
