Kristen Dutton, Nursery Manager of Sunflower Nursery –
“The children will love these, especially in the sand pit or in the garden area. I love how there is so much use from them. They can be used to print; they provide a sensory experience with their raised patterns and they are made of natural stone, so they are great for supporting natural sensory play. Having the raised pattern, children can use them to print with paints and as they are made of stone, they won’t break up like sponge so they will last much longer than normal printing pads. The shapes on the stones will promote mathematical language and shape knowledge, they can be used to sort, count, and weigh which supports maths play in the setting.”

“Our pre-school children were very interested in the stones when we introduced them to the sand. They enjoyed making patterns in the sand and feeling the stones. We also used them with paint for pattern printing. They are very hardwearing and good quality and will probably last forever even with the constant wear and tear they will get. A nice product.”
Sarah Vickery, Montgomery Primary School –
“I really liked that the stones weren’t like anything we’d played with before. Every time the stones were put out they captured a wide range of children’s attention and enabled focused extended play. For example, when added to our play dough activity the children independently discussed the patterns and negotiated turn taking, thus generating a lot of great talk. There was investigative play as the children explored the different ways the dough could be printed into, challenging each other to print both sides or get a bit of each pattern on one piece of flattened play dough. Children visited the play dough table that wouldn’t normally be interested too.”
