Have you ever heard of Model Magic? It’s a clay that you can color and glue on. It dries after several hours and becomes soft and airy and not pliable anymore. I’ve been using this stuff with kids for years.
However, I haven’t introduced it to a toddler as young as J. I figured that there’s no harm in trying.
So here we go.
I bought it in orange because we’ve been using that color a lot around here. I gave him markers and cookie cutters to use as well.
and large gross motor skills too. Oh the effort it takes to tear apart this stuff!
Plus. this is great for cognitive development and problem solving.
Check out what else J learned during this activity…how to take the tops of the markers on and off!
When we were done I rolled it into a ball and let it dry overnight. The next morning J had a new toy that he made himself! It did crack some, but I think that’s because I was in a rush to roll it up and didn’t take the time to get it really smooth. The cool thing about this ball is that it bounces!
I’m always on the lookout for new doughy stuff to introduce to J. Any suggestions on new things I should try?
And…no…I was not paid to review this product…it’s just something that I love and wanted to tell others about it.
