Day 88 of The Holiday Gift Guide

clip_image001The ONLY no-mess creativity substance for preschoolers! Preschoolers love to create with their hands. What better way to let them express their creativity then with Educational Insights Foam Balls?

This is made for kids as young as 3- So Aidan, Adisyn, and I had a ball creating different stuff with these. Adisyn wanted me to make people, dogs, and horses while Aidan wanted me to make him some play guns!

I loved how I never had to clean up huge messes after the kids were done playing with it. It is completely mess free. No icky, sticky, gooey mess that you have to find containers for. This doesn’t dry out no matter how long you leave it out because it is FOAM.

Not only is the foam interactive and engaging but it’s educational as well. See how vibrant and beautiful the colors are? Before Aidan got out of school, Adisyn had time to play with these by herself. She would bring me each colored ball and ask me the colors. These could definitely help teach colors!

This is non-toxic and great for on the go play because it isn’t messy. It’s like playdoh in ways that you can smash it, mold it, and create with it.. but it’s WAT better because there is no smell, no mess, and WAY MORE play time.

Adisyn and Aidan even had tons of fun squishing and rolling this on the wall. They would make different things on the wall and then peel it right back off. It never stuck to the wall or created a mess EVER. I am in love with this stuff, because there are SO many possibilities.

Of course at the end of a week we had no more different colored playfoam. They had smashed it all together and created one giant ball of multicolored foam. It was very pretty though Winking smile

This can also be beneficial in the classroom, so if you’re a teacher—or you teach your children at home. I loved that there were 8 different colors. There were so many possibilities of what we could make.
