Play-Doh is a craft clay that is both non-toxic and is extremely malleable. Children often enjoy forming Play-Doh into simple sculptures, but do not usually make craft items with the Play-Doh. However, you can work with your child to make a couple crafts using Play-Doh clay that you can display around your home. You can buy different types of Play-Doh clay at any craft supply store, art supply shop or supermarket.

Skill level:

Things you need

    Play-Doh Hand Print

  1. 1

    Form one container of Play-Doh into a ball. Select any colour of Play-Doh that you prefer.

  2. 2

    Roll out the Play-Doh into a 1-inch thick circle. Press an unsharpened pencil into the circle to make a hole, positioning the hole 1/2-inch below the outside edge.

  3. 3

    Press your child's palm straight down onto the middle of the Play-Doh circle. When you pull her hand away, an impression will be left behind. Allow the Play-Doh hand print to dry for 3 hours. You can hang up the hand print by stringing twine or a ribbon through the hole.

    Play-Doh Coil Bowl

  1. 1

    Roll half of a container of Play-Doh into a 1/2-inch thick circle using a rolling pin. Roll the other half of the Play-Doh container into a 1/2-inch thick coil.

  2. 2

    Wind the coil along the outside edge of the circle, which will begin to curl into the sides of the pot.

  3. 3

    Smooth the sides of the coil pot together to create an even surface, then allow the coil pot to dry for 2 hours.
