Dallas was very excited when he saw the Clay-Doh in this month’s ambassador pack.
The fact that it was a neutral, earthy colour rather than the bright colours of other commercial playdough brandsimmediately caught his attention.
The accessory kit was a big hit and Dallas wasted no time settingit all up. Using the rolling pin, Dallas flattened the Clay-Doh.
“Now it looks like a map, I’m going to create a map of Wiradjuri country” he explained. Dallas created a river by splitting the Clay-Doh into 2 sections and used the stamps and wooden cutouts to create the camp and hunting areas.

Having nevertouched playdough of any sort before, she was very curious.
She enjoyed poking her fingers into it and watching the Clay-Doh move as she manipulated it.
