BENEFITS OF SENSORY PLAY:
These sets are a perfect jumping off point for kids to explore their creativity through open ended play. Sensory open ended play is play that has no pre-determined instructions. Sets like this encourage kids to use the materials provided and to use their imagination to see what they can create. Kids learn so much through this style of play including problem solving skills, fine motor skills and gripping and molding skills which help to strengthen hand muscles in preparation for writing. These types of activities encourage them to make their own decisions about how to use the materials provided and how to bring their imagination to life!
Included with each set are (4) activity sheets tailored to each theme that provide kids with a jumping off point of what to create using their play dough, with basic prompts such as "Can you use your play dough to decorate your construction hard hat?" I find these are great to get kids imaginations started with what types of things they can make then let their imaginations take over from there!
Each sensory play set includes (4) colours of handmade non-toxic play dough.
Standard playdough includes flour, salt, lemon juice, cream of tartar powder, vegetable oil and food colouring.
The dough can also be made gluten free for those with a child with a gluten sensitivity. Gluten free playdough includes rice flour, cornstarch, salt, cream of tartar powder, lemon juice, vegetable oil and food colouring.
Please note the gluten free playdough has a slightly shorter life span than standard play dough. The standard play dough lasts 8-12 weeks, gluten free playdough lasts about 6-8 weeks.
Each batch of dough is made fresh for each order.
Please note the dough is not edible, it is made from common baking ingredients so while it is non toxic it is not edible due to it's high salt content and some colors containing glitter.
Not recommended for children under 3.
