Homemade playdough is our favorite year-round sensory material. It’s inexpensive and can be easily adapted for any season, holiday, or occasion.
Since we enjoyed our first snowfall today, I thought it would be fun to treat the boys to homemade hot chocolate and a fresh batch of Hot Chocolate Playdough!
