Simple Christmas Playdough Activity ~ Invitation to create Reindeer
We are all about quick and simple activities, especially around Christmas time. Which is why I love invitations to play.

Homemade Playdough for Christmas
I set out a batch of our Gingerbread Playdough along with a few small sticks and mini red pom-poms. Thats it. I left the rest up to the kids;) Googly eyes could be a fun addition as well.
