DIY Playdough-the possibilities are endless
This stuff is great! we had no money till next weekend...so i looked in my daughters craft books. i found DIY play dough and decided to give it a shot! Me and my boyfriend spent a weekend making little things like beads, flowers, skulls, and small wall hangings.
