How To Handle Playdough In The Classroom?

Recommended Posts

I have always sent Moon Sand in with my son with celiac disease. That way I knew he was able to be included in the activities with everyone else. I did, however, speak with my sons gastroenterologist yesterday who told me that I shouldn't worry about skin contact with wheat/gluten containing products. I'm bothered by that because we have spent the last 6 years obsessivly making sure that his personal care items and school craft items are not wheat/gluten based. The medical comminity frustrates us with this disease sometimes.

Gluten isn't absorbed through the skin. That would be why the GI said that. That said, I know my DS is a finger sucker and ALWAYS had his fingers in his mouth. THAT is where the issue would be, actual ingestion from things like finger/thumb sucking, girls with long hair sucking on it. Hygiene to a 6 yo isn't the same as with us! lol
