We were recently sent a Nutty Putty kit to review, and they were kind enough to say that I could run a competition for you lovely people as well!
If you haven’t heard of Nutty Putty before, it’s a material made of non toxic hygienic (there’s an anti-bacterial agent added, perfect for snotty children) silicone, that can be moulded into all sorts of different shapes.
What makes Nutty Putty different than other modelling kits? Well, when you bake your Nutty Putty creations, they don’t go hard. They stay quite soft, squidgy and flexible. They’re a lot more fun to play with than a hard toy, and yet the parts fix together really well with hardly any risk of them being pulled apart if you cook them for long enough.
Nutty Putty was created to:
Develop fine motor skills,
Encourage personal and social skills
Promote concentration, observation and language skills
Encourage imagination, exploration and creativity
Explore the development of various art techniques; sculpting & moulding
EYFS standards and National Curriculum Key Stage Targets
Mostly for us though, we found it fun and a great way to spend an afternoon when it was raining yet again! We were sent the Nutty Putty box with 6 colours in. We loved our kit.
You get inside the box the six colours, tools to help you, cutters, a rolling-pin, an instruction book that doubles as a play matt, and a baking sheet for when you ‘cook’ your creations.
Nutty Putty is suitable for ages 4. The boys had fun making a car and a teddy bear, whilst I was mostly following instructions of which colours to pass them and when. It was lovely seeing them engrossed in something crafty as it’s been a while since they chose to make anything – they are growing up way too quickly for my liking.
The lovely people at Nutty Putty have been kind enough to offer two people the chance to win their own 8 colour box set of Nutty Putty. If you’d like a chance to win, then please do enter via the rafflecopter below!
