Edible Play Dough (Disney Theme)

My kids always love to create! This edible Disney-themed play dough would be a hit at any child’s party or fun for a summer craft activity. It could be used at a Disney-themed birthday party, or you could choose any cookie-cutter shape your child might enjoy.

You could also add any dye color to the edible play dough to brighten things up a bit. Colorful sprinkles on top add even more fun to the process! We love Play-doh crafts and Play-Doh mats!
