Origin of this Holiday?
Play-Doh was invented by Noah and Joseph McVicker in 1956 and awarded U.S. Patent 3,167,440 in 1965. One of many common products invented by accident, it was meant as a wallpaper cleaner, but Joseph's sister, a kindergarten teacher, started letting her students use it as a molding compound for art projects, since clay was too hard and messy. It was
marketed by toy manufacturer Rainbow Crafts, and first sold at the Woodward & Lothrop department store in Washington, D.C.

This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it! 

What is Play-Doh?
Wikipedia tell us that "Play-Doh is a non-toxic modeling clay compound similar in texture to bread dough that has been sold as a children's toy around the world for over half a century." "Its exact makeup is a trade secret, but it is primarily a mixture of wheat flour, water, mineral oil (which provides the smooth texture), salt, a drying agent such as borax (which deters mold), an alum-based hardening agent, colorings and perfume."

"It is non-toxic, non-staining, and soluble in soapy water." "When kept in a sealed container, Play-Doh remains pliable, but when exposed to air it hardens in about a day." "However, because it tends to crack during hardening, it is not ideal for projects one wants to save."
