Gingerbread Play Dough Gift Kit & Recipe

Play Dough has always been one of my kids favorite activities.  I LOVE Play Dough almost as much as my kids do (sometimes I don’t love the mess…).  We have an awesome Homemade Play Dough Recipe that we like to experiment with and make different scents.  Play Dough is pretty easy to make and this play dough has a great texture and consistency.  This is the recipe my mom made with us when we were growing up.
