The Power of Playdough

Have you squished and molded some playdough recently? The National Association for the Education of Young Children shares some insights on the benefits of playing with dough in the article "Playdough Power." You can easily and inexpensively make your own playdough at home using one of the recipes in the article or a slew of others available on-line.
