What our experts think
Our testers absolutely loved picking a character to make (tough choice!) and were very excited about keeping the final product to show off.
This is a great way to encourage creativity and build confidence, as it gives children an easy way to make something they can be proud of. Plus, Nutty Putty doesn’t dry out, so they can always squish their creation and make something else.
Kneading the putty and making the small shapes is also a good way to get pre-schoolers to strengthen the small muscles in their hands and fingers, ready for holding a pencil to write.
It would be even better if...
The putty was quite hard for younger children to manipulate, so an adult might need to soften it up by kneading it first.
