Think play dough is just for pre-schoolers?

I am always amazed at how much time older children and even adults will spend happily squidging and modelling if they get their hands on it. 

I have used play dough to divert teenagers at youth groups, as an ice-breaker at grown-up parties and as a medium for imaginative play and learning.
