PLAY-DOH Play-Dates – Very good for following directions

PLAY-DOH Play-Dates – This app is excellent for following directions. Basically it gives step-by-step directions to make some of the objects using Play-doh.  They had this on their website for a while and they packaged it in to an app.  We used to print them and use it. So, having it on iPhone/iPad makes it easier and saves some paper.
