After we came home from the Secret Shop, the fun wasn't over yet. We decided to make Playdough Cookies. I got the idea from a post at the Crafty Crow. The idea is a simple one.

You can make your own dough, but I had some crayola dough that I purchased through a school fundraiser that worked quite well.

I gave a cookie to Kate. This is what she thought about it:
