Re arts and crafts, the regular play doh has gluten in it so be careful about not only what they eat but also what they play with, as it can get caught under the fingernails.... I found gluten free aroma dough play dough on line. It is great! Oh, also it was cheaper than discount school supply and they make it fresh from the factory and ship it to your door...so I liked that it wasn't sitting on a shelf or in a warehouse but made fresh before they send it to me. I also purchased the splat mat so it keeps it neat on the table...I keep some at home and also gave the school the info. i think the website is www.aromadough.com hope that helps!
