Winter can be so dull. Sometimes you just need to add a bit of sparkle. This Winter Wonderland play dough was inspired by the kids Frozen obsession. With three girls it is still wildly popular here. Adding a bit of sparkle is always a hit. For this months play dough sensory station I made winter wonderland play dough and added some winter themed cookie cutters I found on Christmas clearance.
Make your own Winter Wonderland play dough
Play dough is one of the many things you should never buy premade. I dries out, the kids mix it onto a multi-colored blob and somehow you manage to hold back the tears of frustration as you throw the dough in the trash. Making it yourself you only spend a few cents a batch and can sit back and relax while you invite your child to create.
