Ideal to enrich sensory experiences, these calming sculptures fit snugly and reassuringly in a child’s hand. They are durable enough to be played with outside, including in sand, soil, mud, and water. They can be sorted and classified by different attributes, including colour, shape, and texture, leading to valuable discussion and vocabulary development. Comparisons with their real-life counterparts can lead to work on habitats, whether they are a safe food source and, if so, for who or what. This can lead to expeditions to find them in your local environment or shop and attempts to grow the edible ones in your setting for salads or soups.
