Homemade playdough has been an integral part of early years development for decades. As science has advanced and our world has gone greener, playdough has evolved in magical ways. Playdough is our friend for so many reasons, but it really boils down to two things: cognition and creativity. You can make art with your child, ignite their creative fires, whilst inspiring their brain development.
Creativity is motivation in early years. The growth and development of an inspired child is truly boundless.
Why is colour important for brain development in early years?
Our world is bursting with colours. Colours are a doorway into the exciting world of verbal communication. When our children enthusiastically begin labeling objects “BLUE!’ and “GREEN!” it’s a special moment, and it’s a milestone in their cognitive development.
Children will begin to label colours, with your encouragement, as early as 18 months. Once they start, there is no stopping them, as long as we provide the inspiration they need.
Little Legend is your source of inspiration. Our 100% homemade Playdough Imagination Set gives you 9 colours, made with organic ingredients. Each playdough has a secret ingredient, which gives a unique aroma for the little ones to enjoy.
- Red = salak
- Orange = orange
- Yellow = banana
- Purple = grapes
- Blue = jasmine
- Light green = apple
- Dark green = pandan
- Brown = chocolate
- Pink = strawberry
Why is playdough important for brain development in early years?
The moment you buy playdough for your child and show them the limitless possibilities, watch their brains light up. Sparks fly as their imagination runs wild. It will soon become an integral part of the day, and their childhood. Our Playdough Imagination Set is a positive family experience, which will enable deep parent/child bonding.
- Inspires creativity
Playdough feeds the imagination, which craves the freedom to play, mould, shape and explore! With this squidgy substance, your child can create anything their imagination desires. This will provide them with a constant source of positive energy and inspiration.
- Develops fine motor skills
All those important functions our children need at school; grasping things, drawing, writing, all require practice and there’s no better way to practice – than with playdough.
- Improves focus and concentration
Speaking from experience, this has really helped us with our daughter – who never stops moving. A session can last up to 30 minutes for our two-year-old daughter, which is a long time for her! The older and more focused your child, the longer these sessions will last.
- Therapeutic and relaxing
Let’s admit it – the squidgy substance is a great stress reliever for adults as well as children!
Our Playdough Imagination Set comes complete with:
- 9 colours of playdough
- 5 biscuit cutters
- 1 roller
- 1 wood cutting board
All the utensils in our Playdough Imagination Set provide extra fun, creativity and cognitive development for your children.
Please note: Playdough normally lasts 3-4 months if it is kept refrigerated. If left in room temperature, it will last 2-3 months on average.
