This dough is a great tool to encourage kids creativity too (as well as play dough). This dough has a much different feel and consistency. It is elastic and stretchy like silly putty, but much softer. It's a great sensory material for young ones to feel and work with. I really like it. You can add sprinkles or color to this as well.
