Play Dough Valentines

Sharing is caring!

I took out my homemade play dough recipe one morning so the kids could play with their play dough snowman kit. While I was making the play dough they asked me to add some color and I did.  One thing led to another and our winter activity turned into a Valentine’s activity. The boys made play dough hearts and decorated them with beads.
