Mind the Beeswax

Beeswax play
Children love to be “busy”- to move their bodies in small ways (developing fine motor skills) and in big ways (gross motor skills). I am always on the lookout for new ideas to keep little hands and fingers “happy”. Our whole family loves beeswax! It is non-toxic and mess free! Just heat a piece in the palm of your hand until it softens like putty, work it with your fingers and mold away! Make shapes, figures, stretch it thin like stained glass- perfect for sensory play. Even little ones can use it. Buy it in thin sheets of any color, store it in a zip lock bag and reuse! Perfect for waiting in lines, restaurants, long car rides, plane travel, church or just a rainy day. I travel with small pieces in my purse for those “just in case” moments! – Amanda Deburro
