Today is national Play Doh Day!! Yeah!!! For the occasion I thought I would write about something new from Play Doh and oriented for an older child. In August I attended a small Hasbro show for bloggers which featured new products. My favorite is this new line from Play Doh – DohVinci – which is aimed at children older than the traditional pre-school. Recommend over ages 6 and up.

DohVinci is a new air dry compound that fit into a styler and squezzed unto any surface that you like. There are different attachments for different designs. You let it air dry and voila – you have a 3-D work of art. At the event we had the opportunity to decorate a frame with DohVinci, let it dry and take it home.

|Okay, So I'm not much an artist - but I sure had fun.|
There are sets you can buy to decorate such as this one....
|DohVinci Style and Store Vanity Kit|
This is a great product for a craft at a sleepover birthday party or a grandparent visit. It would make a fun project for a grandmother and school age child to do together - perhaps making homemade holiday gifts. Check it out - available in stores and at Amazon. See some Amazon links below.
