  1. What a fun idea! I haven’t used play doh yet with my little guy because of the whole eating everything – so this would be perfect to make for him!

  2. How do you store this – does it have to be kept in the fridge or just in a plastic container on the counter? My little is OBSESSED with play-doh and it can get expensive!

    1. We just keep them in plastic containers at room temperature in our craft closet. Sometimes over time they will require an additional pinch of flour but other than that we’ve had a lot of success! Thanks for stopping by Sara – have a great day.
