Playdough

Playdough is that wonderfully gooey dough that is great for childrens' tactile development, hand / eye coordination and is just plain fun.

Playdough can be bought or homemade.

The purchased Playdough usually lasts longer but the homemade playdough is much cheaper, easily replaceable and you know exactly what is in it (in case any child decides to taste test the playdough).
