There are many methods of teaching your child their letters, numbers, and shapes. They all have their merits, but our favorite kind of learning is the kind that happens by chance while kids are having fun.
Sparkle Playfoam, from Educational Insights, offers many opportunities for stealth learning, while kids are squishing, mooshing, and sculpting this delightful molding medium. Every Sparkle Playfoam experience gives kids an opportunity to exercise their creativity and their imagination – are they making a person, or a dog, or a tree, or perhaps, if Mom is trying to sneak in some teaching, the letter A, or the number 5?
No matter how you use Sparkle Playfoam, the kids will enjoy the odd and satisfying texture (Playfoam is made with tiny foam beads – it feels a bit like Rice Krispy treats), and you’ll love the fact that Sparkle Playfoam sticks to itself but not to anything else! You won’t find Sparkle Playfoam ground into the rug or into your child’s clothes, and it doesn’t leave your hands feeling sticky, either. And of course, Sparkle Playfoam sparkles!
The Educational Insights Sparkle Playfoam 4 Pack comes with four softball-sized, separately packaged balls of non-toxic Playfoam. Suitable for ages 3 and up.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
This is a great toy for trips and those moments where you need a surprise. It comes in smaller packs as well. We pulled it out on an airplane trip and my two year old was thrilled to play with it. Just the right amount of tackiness - doesn't stick to clothes or skin and its easy to clean up.
