Gift Crafty-Homemade Playdough

A great project that is fun if you have little ones on your list is making your own play dough.  I am really disappointed that this year I do not have anyone age appropriate to do this for.  However, last year the kids and I had a blast making red and green for their younger cousins.  We purchased cheap packs of Tupperware style containers at the Dollar Tree and put them in cute holiday bags with a cookie cutter.  Adorable!  See below for the recipe:
