  1. I really enjoy your creations.
    I was wondering how you made your play doh?
    My children really enjoy play doh.
    Some of the links on the valentines post didn’t show recipes but rather just the heart cut centred cookies. That may be the way it’s supposed to be. I just wanted the play doh recipe::-))

  2. Hi Christine, thanks for letting me know about the links -should be all fixed now. Hope you enjoy making the play dough!
