Playing with Play dough can be turned into a science lesson for the very young. In her TED talk, AnnMarie Thomas describes how to make a circuit using the normal Play dough recipe containing salt then adding into the ‘game’ some playdough made with sugar.

“Play dough can be used to demonstrate electrical properties — by lighting up LEDs, spinning motors, and turning little kids into circuit designers.”
