Play Kit: Wooden Roti Maker
Babies and toddlers do as we do! And every little one who has ever watched their parents or grandparents make roti wants in on the fun. Why not have their own food-grade wooden roti maker with which to play along? This box is powerful because sensory, cognitive, physical and emotional skills are built simultaneously.
Did you know? Sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathway.
Babies and toddlers explore the world through their senses! Sensory play is the biggest teacher during the first few years. The brain develops when the senses are activated. They will use these senses as building blocks for learning in the later years.
Edible sensory play activities make this exploration safe and fun! They also help the baby grasp language, build their brain, and strengthen their fingers. They also learn – yes! – problem solving skills.
Your babies will feast on the language in this incredible board book on Indian food! "Puffed-rice salad called bhel puri crackles when we chew, Say hello to plump samosas stuffed with minty mashed aloo." Isn't that just yummy? Are you salivating? Is your tummy growling? Children will feast on the language, the sounds, and the visual imagery. There's another reason why this book is so brilliant for toddlers. It comes with an activity that is such a nostalgic play and work tool, especially for us Indians. This activity is also perfect for working on those gross and fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
