How Bad Really Is Play-doh If They Dont' Eat It?
Posted 14 October 2009 - 12:31 PM
I still let my DD play with it, I just always wash her hands thoroughly. Her GI said the chance of it getting through her skin if she doesn't have a cut or something is soooo ridiculously small I shouldn't sweat it. Just be sure to wash well.
She doesn't seem to react to it. Should I change what I'm doing?

There's a recipe on here somewhere for gluten-free play-doh, if you google it.
Daughter diagnosed 1/06 bloodwork and biopsy
-gluten-free since 1/06
Son tested negative-bloodwork (8/07), intestinal issues prompted biospy (3/08), results negative, but very positive dietary response, Dr. diagnosed Celiac disease (3/8)

I think I'll look into supplying her school with gluten-free dough. I just never thought it was that bad b/c her Dr. seemed to think the chance was sooooo tiny and remote he made it seem like I'd be overreacting if I made a big deal out of it. KWIM?

What we didn't count on was him playing at the playdough station, then going to a different station and back to playdough. Even with my husband chasing after him (he was parent help the one and only time we tried this) it was very hard to enforce the hand washing.
Then all the other kids are NOT washing their hands and getting gluten all over all the other toys. Kids randomly put their hands in their mouths to bite their nails or whatever. It ends up on the table, and the floor and the room is covered in gluten for the rest of the day. And we really had to soak his nails to get it out of there.
Since it's fairly simple to make gluten free playdough, we ended having the school go that route and they were very accommodating. I just gave his kindergarten an industrial sized bottle of cream of tarter and five pounds of the cheap rice flour from the Asian supermarket and we're going to keep doing the gluten free playdough until he's too old for it. Even though he's six, with a mouth full of loose teeth, his hands are still in his mouth.
