Hours of creative fun with Playfoam

Messy hands, sticky hair, permanent hand prints on walls and stained carpets is every mother's nightmare! But with children at home can we expect anything else? 
Yes I say! We can definitely try to minimize the mess but not at the expense of the fun!
As a child we have all spent hour after hour imagining, creating and playing with clay. In our days we played with plain old clay that came in the form of different coloured bars in a box. Then came Playdoh! Oh all the things that could be created with the Paydoh sets. And now there's Playfoam. 



When I found out about Playfoam, and what they claimed was mess free clay, I wondered if it could really be true. How can a child play with something like clay without being messy?! But Playfoam is just that. Available in various colours in sparkle and plain variants, Playfoam is non toxic, non allergenic (no gluten, no proteins, no organic materials) and mess free. Playfoam is made up of lots of sticky foam balls, sticky enough to mold the foam into shapes, but not sticky enough to stick to skin,hair or anything else. Unlike other sand or dough based products, when you combine the colours, you are left with a really lovely mix of colours rather than everything turning into a grungy brown colour. Easy to mold, Playfoam is great for sensory play and fine motor skill development and is very therapeutic.

It provides hours of creative fun with its light weight, colourful foam sculpting material. The foam beads don't separate out, crumble nor does it dry out. So it can be reused over and over again. As claimed by the company "you can squish it, save it.....or smoosh it and start all over again." Overall, I think that Playfoam is a really amazing product to encourage children (and their parents) to enjoy some relaxing, mess free, creative play.
Playfoam is available exclusively at Angel in a crib

  1. Now this is an interesting product I did not know about. Must try it with my daughter. She loves playdoh, but I usually give her some chapati dough to play with since I'm worried about her putting them in mouth.

Ronav’s first experience with Canvas painting

Back in January this year, Ronav’s grandparents gifted him an easel, canvas papers and paints.  We spent one Saturday afternoon creating this finger painting. He painted the entire thing himself with a few inputs from me.  At that time he had little knowledge of what the roots of trees really do. So when I explained the roots help in anchorage and nutrition, he made them round and big to give his trees maximum nutrients.  He also painted two suns. When I asked him the reason for doing that, this was his explanation “One sun is up in the sky to give us light and one sun is close to my trees to help them grow stronger and  taller quickly.” The imaginative minds of young kids!  Needless to say that we have saved this one!

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Invitations:
Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.


Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.


Barn Entrance:
Our main door was decorated to look like a barn door.

Paper Rosettes, Streamers: Were hand made …
