One of our Advent activities this weekend was a family favorite: making peppermint play doh. And boy howdy, we made a giant batch that has kept us creating all weekend!
Our family first discovered peppermint play doh about six years ago when our little church compiled a cookbook of favorite recipes and my friend Wendy submitted this one.
We haven’t made it in a few years, and I’d forgotten what a cool, sensory experience the whole process was. Cooking play doh on a stovetop smells like working in a candy cane factory. And for my Tennessee boy who longs for a good Elf-like snowball fight, rolling up little red snowballs and building peppermint snowmen and igloos is the next best thing!cookie cutters handy.
When Oliver got home from school on Friday he said – and I quote, “I don’t want to play with the iPad! I just want to play with my hands!”
Mama’s heart is happy with that one.
He and Hazel played with this stuff all weekend long!
Merry Christmas, friends! Only 8 days to go!
