    Thanks so much for linking up to Thriving on Thursdays. Even though my kids are a bit old for play dough, I wished I saw these recipes when they were little. There was often more eaten than what was played with! I’m featuring this one at tomorrow’s party. Hope to see you again.

    My kids are older and have grown out of the eating playdoh stage (thank goodness!) but these ideas are perfect for those with little ones who are still tempted to have a bite!

      Haha, I know what you mean. Nutella really belongs on a spoon… mine doesn’t even make it to bread, let alone playdough! 🙂
