I am an only child and my cousin Kelly means the world to me. She has 2 of the most beautiful and perfect girls - Kerrington is 3 and Quinn just turned 1. I just love love love them!!!
So in their Christmas box I am making them a batch of this Gingerbread Play-dough I found on Sweet Sugar Belle's blog.
I put mine in a quart canning jar with gingerbread cookie cutters attached.
