It’s Christmastime, which means we’re having a lot of fun over here making sweet holiday memories. I just love this time of the year. It’s cozy and warm, and I love watching the kids experience the magic of Christmas. The joy it brings them is infectious!
The kids were asking me for some playdough last week, and I decided to have some fun and make them a special *sugar cookie playdough* version. Y’all… I regret it only because my house smelled like Christmas cookies, which made me crave them for the rest of the day!
I love making homemade playdough, because you use simple ingredients, and you can make it fun with different colors, scents or even (in today’s case) sprinkles! Best of all it’s an easy way to involve the kids in the kitchen. We have so much fun cooking and making things together… We talk about the ingredients we use, how much we’re using, and I let them help with pouring and stirring. Simple things like that are fun ways to interact with your kids AND make something for them to play with later. So if you have a tactile play loving kiddo at home, you should try making some sugar cookie playdough this holiday season!
