Let’s be honest — technology is great, and it certainly has a place in today’s world. But too much screen time has its downsides, especially for kids. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite activity kits as the perfect way to unplug, imagine, create, and explore. Check ‘em out to make your home a device-free zone (at least for a couple of hours!).
Let your imagination roam to the depths of the sea with a fully-stocked sensory bin! From soft & squishy expanding water beads to pebbles, stretchable Aqua Splash™ water play sand, sifters, shovels, rollers, and molds — you can explore textures and strengthen fine motor skills all in a mess-free play station!
Sculpting is even more fun when you’re working with super squishy, zero-mess clay! Discover all the sensory feels with 12 vibrant, pre-textured air-dry clays and see what Mixy Squish™ creations you can make — like a vibrant marshmallow sandwich! — then watch it dry squishy and smooth for tons of pretend play.
Bring your favorite on-screen characters off-screen! Paint Bluey (and Bingo too!) with this light-up figurine kit — not only is painting super fun, but the functional nightlight is the perfect bedtime buddy. Kids won’t realize they’re developing dexterity when they’re creating a pup-tastic masterpiece — hooray!
Skip the messy mixing and get straight to the fun with a ready-to-mold handprint stone. Sand Dough™ is a less-mess alternative to plaster that dries quickly, so kids can get to the painting faster! Feel the texture and explore sensory play, then display or share — handmade keepsakes make sweet gifts for Father’s Day, Grandparents Day, and every day in between.
