Cost: free for Supporting/$5 Geographic*
Ages: 3+

Description: Squishy Circuits uses conductive and insulating play dough to teach the basics of electrical circuits in a fun, hands-on way. There’s no need for breadboards or soldering – just add batteries and pre-made doughs (or make your own dough with the provided recipes). Let your creations come to life as you light them up with LEDs, make noises with buzzers, and spin with the motor.

Squishy Circuits is very simple and is based on two play doughs – one that is conductive (electricity flows through it) and one that is insulative (does not allow electricity to flow through it). Power is supplied by a 4AA battery pack and travels through the conductive dough to provide power to LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), buzzers, or motors. SWON provides batteries in the kit.
