This week we’ve been doing some small world play. We had a chance to try out RoseArt’s Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker, and it was a huge hit!
My favorite thing about this activity is that your child gets to create their own small pet figures for their small world. We did this activity as a play date with a few other kids and I loved seeing how creative the kids got with each of their animals. From picking out the colors to create them, painting them, and naming each of them and placing them in their own small world scenes.
There are SO many benefits to small world play from increasing imaginativity and creativity, to language development, developing independent play skills and more! Basically, small world play is acting out scenarios in a miniature play scene that is created with small figures and objects. These can be completely fantasy or based in real life facts.
The Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker is aimed for kids ages 5-7 and the directions were very easy to follow without any complications.
What Our Spin & Sparkle Pet Maker Included:
6 Magic Cast powder pouches
Three Pet Maker molds
Hand-powered Pet Maker handle
Measuring cup with spout
Paints, sparkle glaze and paintbrush
Expressive eyes and decorative gems
Pet pop-up worlds
Story cards for each pet
How To Make Your Own Pet:
To begin, just add water to the Magic Cast Powder. Pour mixture into Pet Mold and Spin the kid-powered handle for 2 minutes (no batteries necessary) then set aside. After only 20 minutes, open the mold to reveal your pet! No other product lets you cast a pet AND customize/decorate it – in such a short amount of time!
After it’s dried you can start customizing them by painting and adding the eyes, hearts, and of course glitter!
Once the pets are ready, they each have their own pop-up world and story card for play time. There’s also more Pet Pals Character Refill Packs that can be used with this Spin and Sparkle Pet Maker such as pandas, zebras, koalas and penguins. Collect all 11 Pets!
