Summer Theme Play Ideas and Activities

I absolutely adore the vibrant and bright colours of this jelly play dough.  It is perfect for a Summer Theme Play Dough Invitation to play.  The play dough is scented with lime, strawberry and pineapple and when combined create a fruity tropical summer fruit drink.
