Plasticine Modelling Clay for Kids

Plasticine has seen extensive use as entertainment and creative toys for children since it was first introduced in 1900. Thanks to its pliability, kids get to create whatever their unfettered minds can imagine and the fact that it’s available at pocket friendly prices means that there really is no limit to what they can create as there’s lots of plasticine to go around. It comes in an assortment of colours and many sellers include tools with which it can be sculpted into various shapes and designs made on the mouldings. Some manufactures and sellers even include casts shaped like animals, trees, plants, flowers, fruits, stars, food and many other fun shapes; this way, children find it easier to bring their imaginations to life.

Modelling clay is used in schools for children from preschool and kindergarten to older kids and teenagers. As a matter of fact, adults also use it for arts and crafts projects and therapists have also described working with modelling clay as calming, stress relieving and generally therapeutic. Playing with modelling clay also provides a way for parents and kids to bond while they create and play together. So you see, there’s a ready market for this stuff. There really is no end to what one can do with modelling clay as James May proved to the world with his Plasticine Garden at the 2009 Chelsea Flower Show.

Unlike regular clay and mud, plasticine does not dry out and can be reused again and again. Moreover, it doesn’t stick to surfaces, stain clothes or hands. It’s been certified safe and non-toxic but shouldn’t be eaten. It’s also lightweight and is often sold as a large package with very many colour options. It makes a great gift for children, schools and child care givers.
