National Play-Doh Day
National Play-Doh Day celebrates a great childhood play toy. 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 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.
It’s fun and easy to celebrate National Play-Doh Day. Simply pull out the Play-Doh and ……Play! There are other brands of play clay on the market. Having raised three children, this author has never seen a better brand than Play-Doh.
