I love making dough and slime…..and I know you do too! Today I’m giving you a simple recipe for holiday dough.

You can change the colors for any holiday or preference just add different food coloring. Also, feel free to change the oil scents. The ones in my video are our family’s favorites. Suggestions include cinnamon, clove, pine, or vanilla.
