I didn’t know that making play dough could be so easy. Searching for kids activity ideas for the long winter days ahead of us, I decided to give homemade play dough a try. I looked for a no-cook play dough recipe and this one caught my eye. One of the ingredients sounded quite intriguing: baby rice cereal.

I decorated each bag to look like Santa, Christmas tree and reindeer.
I used a sharpie to draw a Christmas tree on the green play dough bag and glued a red star on top.
I made Santa’s belt from yellow and black felt.
A couple of googly eyes and a red pom pom for Rudolph’s nose and brown pipe cleaners helped me decorate the brown play dough bag.
The boys could hardly wait for me to be done with the photos so they could open the bags and play. They rolled the play dough on the kitchen table and used Christmas cookie cutters. They ended up mixing all three colors together and I’m sure they’ll ask for a new batch in a few days. If you decide to go for homemade play dough, make sure you keep the play on a surface that can be easily cleaned as the play dough is a bit greasy. If you want to avoid this, you can certainly use store bough play dough.
These three Christmas play dough bags can also be used as stocking stuffers or as treats for the school Christmas party.
