Build a Play Dough Snowman Kit

As a kid, I LOVED playing with play dough. My mom had all of these fun toys that we used to cut the dough, shape it into fun “foods” or whatever or imaginations allowed. As I got older, I remember helping in my Grandma’s Sunday School class & loved when she would make her homemade play dough because I could love playing with the little kids and help them create such fun things.

When my kids got older, we definitely had play dough but they didn’t seem to like it the same way I did as a kid. I even asked my girlfriend if it would be weird if a 40-year-old woman bought herself some play dough from Walmart. Asking for a friend, of course!

That’s why I am in love with this Build a Play Dough Snowman Kit. It’s not only so much fun to make with your kids for your own family but it’s also such a great gift idea!

I used to be too afraid to make my own play dough but then I did it a few times & I loved how it turned out! It’s not hard at all & my kids have always loved helping me with it!
