World Play-Doh Day – Australia

Luna Park, Sydney – Sunday 16th September 2018

Imaginations came to life on Sunday 16th September as World Play-Doh Day was celebrated with over 800 people at Luna Park. With Sydney Harbour as the stunning backdrop, children and their families enjoyed the bright, breezy Spring day exploring ten different Play-Doh activities, face-painting, giant colouring-in and the unveiling of an exclusive sculpture by author and artist, Megan McKean.

Big Wild Imagination provided fun and educational Play-Doh experiences, using the amazing array of Play-Doh kits, resources and tools to highlight the five main learning and developmental benefits of Play-Doh. Our team of early childhood educators were on hand to guide and enhance the children’s play and answer questions from the families.

Megan McKean, author of “Hello Sydney” and the soon to be released “Hello Australia” used Play-Doh compound to create a hyper-coloured version of Sydney Harbour, complete with the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, gardens, ferries and even a lurking shark!

For two hours, families mingled in the sunshine as the children were absorbed in the creative delights of Play-Doh and watched their imaginations take shape before their eyes.
