There’s no single way to celebrate the greatness of the United States of America — and the clever folks over at Play-Doh weren’t about to reinvent the wheel.
Which is why they asked their fans on Facebook to vote on what they felt was worth celebrating about each individual state. Starting on Memorial Day, they polled different groups from coast to coast about the icons that most represented the spirit of the states, and the winners were sculpted — out of Play-Doh, of course — into a comprehensive map of the country.
Happy 4th of July — and have some fun looking at the Play-Doh map of the United States, as well as some of the individually sculpted state icons:
