Homemade Play-dough

A couple curious questions "Mom, how are crayons made? How are markers made?" and...
"Mom, how do they make play-doh?" prompted us to find some You-tube videos and learn.

That lead to making our own play-dough and also some brain-training.

Did you know that dyslexic kids are re-trained by various methods...
one important one being shaping letters and numbers with play-dough?

The kids had a blast cooking up the dough and coloring it and kneading into shapes.
And little did they know, they were learning to make their letters correctly.

As you can see below, Miles still needs a little help with that "s", 
but it was too cute to correct for the picture, haha!
