When the weather is cold and wet, our family looks for fun indoor projects. This recipe for homemade play dough is awesome! My son will spend hours with this fun and creative activity. Even my older boys will join in and make fun creations. It’s a great family activity. This PLay Dough is quick and easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand.
Homemade Play Dough
