It’s an annual event to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. How can you help spread this awareness?

Who doesn’t love playing play dough? Even as a kid, we love to mush and squeeze and make something out of these squishy stuff. Also, this material promotes learning and helps in developing all fine motor skills in children. When they compress and squeeze the dough, they are exercising the muscles of their hands. The child’s bilateral coordination skills are improved as well. It is better to make your own homemade play dough to make sure that is free from any harmful chemicals.
