One concern of many parents of school-age children is how to make sure their children don't come into contact with gluten and other allergens while at school. But what about all the supplies they use at school? Paint, glue, markers, playdough and clay can often contain allergens such as dairy, soy, egg, gluten, latex and even peanuts.

- Gluten-Free Playdough
Discount School Supplies also carries gluten-free and allergen-free craft materials, markers, clay, crayons, glue and paint that will help you provide safe allergen-free products for your child to use. I was a teacher and often ordered from this company. Discount School Supplies has the best selection at some of the lowest most competitive prices around.
And if you are ordering playdough for your child for school be sure to ask what tools your child's class may use with them so you can order some of those as well to keep the dough from being contaminated.
Make Your Own Playdough
I have an easy recipe for gluten-free, allergen-free playdough in Celeste’s Best Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free Recipes
which is posted here
on my blog.
I still remember when they first introduced this dough. My daughter was older but it was the first time we bought a gf playdough that my daughter could safely play with and do all those fun things you can only do with playdough. She had such an absolute blast. All kids should be able to safely play with playdough. All kids.
Also want to add that Aroma makes a terrific playdough, too, that is made with organic rice flour, sodium, water, moisturizing oils and natural aromas and is free of gluten, soy, corn, dairy, nuts and yeast.
