Making play dough is such a fun way to complete a quick crafty project that results in excitement and entertainment for your kids. This red, white, and blue play dough is a great way to celebrate Independence Day or Memorial Day.
Not only is this play dough feature bright and vivid colors, but it’s scented, too. Adding glitter to the dough gives it the perfect finishing touch.
Play dough is an easy and frugal way to celebrate the upcoming holiday with your kids. I was able to purchase a 4 pack of colored glitter from Dollar Tree and the Koolaid packets are usually 3/$1 at my local grocery store. The rest of the ingredients were already in my pantry!
