Create Your Own Play-Dough Animal

Follow the instructions to create your own custom playdough. Then think about various physical features throughout the animal kingdom – different types of faces, body-types, sizes, colors, limbs, hair, etc. Combine features of your choice to create a new animal that doesn’t already exist. You can reshape the Playdough into this new animal from your imagination, or plants, or other things found in nature.
