There's just nothing quite like clay, playdough and putty! Not only is it a great way to make something interesting and completely unique, but it helps your children learn about art and creativity. It's the perfect hands-on creative outlet. Using clay and moulding doughs is limitless. They can be moulded into interesting shapes and can be both a fun tactile experience and a great way for your kids to learn about shape and space relationships. When it comes to clay and moulding, a little squashing can make an incredible final product.
