Just when you thought you’d never find a variation of playdough that you haven’t made, I bring you Christmas Playdough! What I love about this homemade playdough recipe is that it’s bright green and super simple to make.

It’s an easy way to create hours of play for your child and also work on their fine motor skills and creativity at the same time. Plus, if you have a child who’s going to be home over winter break for a while, this playdough recipe is certain to help keep them entertained.

Christmas Playdough

What’s better than having an activity for your toddler or preschooler that won’t really cause a big mess? What we love about playdough in our home is that it’s moldable, creative, can smell amazing, offers hours of hands-on fun, and doesn’t stick to anything and everything around it!

Plus, using Christmas cookie cutters to make fun holiday shapes takes this playdough for good to great! We also like to dig around in our craft area and home and find some cool “bling” or fun beads that we can decorate our Christmas playdough with.

After all, the more color and creativity the better, right?!
