September 16 was World Play-Doh day and the Mayborn Museum held an interactive event for kids to learn, using the classic toy.

“We are an informal learning site and so we want to kind of mesh the fun and learning together and what better way to do that, than with Play-Doh,” said Anne McKay, museum engagement coordinator at the Mayborn.

McKay said she heard about world Play-Doh day last year and thought it would be a great opportunity to teach kids.

Four stations were set up in the museum for kids to count, create, build and use lights with Play-Doh. The stations also incorporated science, math and art, she said.

“Play-Doh is a really tactile, sensory toy that they can use and the possibilities are endless because it’s moldable clay,” McKay said.
