Play With Your Child on National Play-Doh Day

Play-Doh 6-Pound Container – Red Hasbro

The timeless classic Play-Doh will be reveled as households and schools around the country celebrate National Play-Doh Day on September 16, 2009.

I cannot think of a better reason to break out some of this fabulous modeling compound and to get my kids energized about making something cool. My children love pretend play and especially love anything to do with their play kitchen or making food.

We just so happen to have the new Play-Doh Burger Builder so I am thinking that I will put the kids in charge of making dinner tonight. They can even choose the colors.

Launched in the mid 1950s Play-Doh has really come full circle as more and more teachers add it to their school supply lists. We even give Play-Doh out for Halloween instead of candy. And trust me when I say that some kids come back twice.

Play-Doh is a fun and imaginative way to entertain your children. Play-Doh allows kids to express their creativity and to make something that they can be proud of. So celebrate. Celebrate National Play-Doh Day this September 16, 2009.

  1. What a fun post! I didn’t know there was a National Play-Doh day. How funny. We played with the stuff today without even knowing that! 🙂

    My kids love to pretend the stuff is food. And my son makes dinosaurs. I make snakes.

    I always loved Play-Doh. My nephews used to build castles with it. Then we used to make monsters for the castles! I also love silly putty!
