In my house summer and play doh were a match made in heaven.  My boys were huge playdough fans! They loved the texture, smell, and all the fun things they could make… especially very long snakes.  {giggle}  Sadly, those days are over for me as my youngest is 11 years old.  However, I couldn’t help but enjoy the nostalgia and share these super cool play doh ideas for your kiddos.  Hopefully they’ll help beat the boredom.

How to make play doh with these ideas which include how to make play dough, scented playdough, marshmallow play doh, play doh soap, play doh sets, free printable mats and so much more!
