Welcome to Joey Box #2, our October box!
October is here and packed with goodness! All things weather this month. Enjoy the month and our amazing voices :) - we love creating for your little ones!
Here we go!
The playdough is a little stickier than usual this month. We used organic coloring to make it whiter which caused it to be stickier than usual. If you leave the lid off and let it dry out a little, it will help with the stickiness. It looks so cool like snow but makes a little more mess than usual. Next month we will be back to our standard playdough everyone knows and loves.
