How to Make This Play Dough

  1. Place all the play dough ingredients into the mixing bowl. Then mix them all together using your hands until it forms a soft dough. That's all there is to it!
  2. When not in use, store the honey play dough in an airtight container in the fridge. It should keep for about 2 weeks. 
  3. Before you want to use the dough, take it out of the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. This will help make it more pliable for little hands.
  4. Let the kids shape the dough with their hands or cookie cutters and then decorate with raisins, seeds, chocolate chips, sprinkles etc. 

When the kids are done playing with the play dough and decorating it, they will also have fun eating it. What a fun treat this will make for them.

You could also make this as a party favor for the kids and they could take it home to play with. Decorate some small containers, put it in their party bag and the kids will love it.
