Make National Play Doh Day Natural Play Dough Day!
National Play-Doh Day celebrates a great childhood play toy on September 16.
Invented in the mid 1950s, it has entertained millions of children, and allowed them to express their creativity, both at home and in the classroom.
The original invention was simple. A school teacher wanted a safe modeling clay for her pre-schoolers. She asked her brother-in-law Joseph McVicker, who worked at a chemical company, to come up with something. The result was simple....flour, water and food coloring.
You can do the same at home -- and it is healthier!
