Make Playdough and “squishy circuits” with MAKE magazine's founder

Editors note: CNN's "The Next List" recently profiled the founder of MAKE magazine and the Maker Faire, Dale Dougherty. The show airs on Sundays at 2 p.m. ET.

MAKE magazine's mission - shockingly enough - is to encourage people to make things. The art of making isn't just an act, however, argues Dale Dougherty, who started the publication. It's an outlook on life.

Here's a chance to try quirky "maker" project for yourself.

The goal: squishy circuits. Watch the above video from “The Next List,” in which host Dr. Sanjay Gupta gets a lesson on the basics of electricity with the help of some Playdough, a battery and lights. It’s a great way to teach kids the basics of electricity, says Dougherty. And whether your 2 or 92, admit it, you'll have to admit: we all love playing with Playdough.

You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
