Fun Activity for you and your Baby Bee

I may be an entrepreneur and designer. But my favorite role is that of mommy. I take that job very seriously. The benefits are long lasting and my pay is in lots of big hugs and sticky kisses. Not to mention soggy cheerios and goldfish crackers!

My charge is my adorable Baby Bee - (a happy, bubbly, funny, energetic and oh-so-sweet toddler) and every single day is an adventure with her. To keep things fun and fresh - we've decided to try one brand new activity or project a day. Just last week we made puzzles, a matching game, friendship bracelets like Dora, decorated love notes that we sent to special people in our lives, made a personalized book of Baby Bee on an adventure with Dora, made a sandbox out of rice and made homemade play dough!

More on the other activities later! We are sharing with you today the perfect play dough recipe. Get the cookie cutters and rolling pins out! You are sure to love this surefire old favorite!

P.S. We chose to do yellow play dough because it minimizes the "stain" factor! We also left out the veggie oil. We'll add a few drops as it starts to dry out. Enjoy!
