Gluten-free Play Dough

We all remember playing with Play Doh as a kid, right? Well, for a child with celiac, this can pose a problem. The traditional dough that we remember playing with as a kid is made with wheat flour. After playing with the dough, hands are then covered in wheat flour, it is stuck under fingernails and it can make a child very sick if they ingest even a little bit and we all know that kids constantly have their hands in their mouths. The solution? Gluten-free dough. Thankfully, there are many on the market today to choose from and there are recipes for you to make your own.
