We all know that kids love play doh. They just love how it feels in their hands and how they can mold it into different shapes. Since the first time I introduced my son to play doh, he has never got bored of it. He can play with it whenever I hand him some. Now buying play doh from the market is easy, but can prove to be very expensive in the long run. Because if not properly stored the play doh turns very hard and is impossible to use again. Most of the times kids also lose it or turn it into a million pieces which are very hard to put back again. Once kids make something out of the play doh, then they don’t want to break it and you would also love to keep it as a souvenir of something creative your kids made for once. So you go to the market again and buy some new play doh for them.
