Christmas lights letter trace is a fun and easy holiday play dough invitation to play for kids! Practice and learn letters with this colourful Christmas play dough for a great literacy activity for toddlers or preschoolers.
For play dough invitations to play, I normally use a plastic appetizer tray to hold and organize all the loose parts. I was able to snag ours from a dollar store. But you can also use a few bowls to hold all the loose parts. For this invitation I decided to use wooden bowls instead and it worked beautifully!
