This is The Best No-Cook Play Dough. I’m not even kidding. I have been making play dough for 20 years and I finally feel like this one is pure perfection. I also realized it was time to start talking more about our emotions and this book In My Heart was the perfect introduction to sharing about feelings. I just love mixing books with hands on activities. Don’t you?
The Best No-Cook Play Dough
I have been so excited to share this book and play dough with you. Seriously, I think I love this play dough as much as the kids. It is the softest, the squisiest, and definitely the prettiest play dough ever. Which makes it the best! Don’t get me wrong our No-Cook Natural Cinnamon Play Dough is the best too! But this one has the pretty factor 😉
Squishy Soft Heart Dough = Perfection
My kids love when I say we are going to make homemade play dough or any other sensory play activity. Their faces light up and they know they are going to have a fun day. I just love seeing this sweet face smiling while she plays.
Plus they are totally working those hand muscles which does wonders for their fine motor skills. These muscles are very important when it comes to writing.
