One of the things in the kit was Stockmar Modeling Beeswax. I guess its kind of like playdoh or clay because the kids play with it and form it into things. But, its way cooler. Its not as easy to use but Gator loves it, Peanut too!
It takes lots of concentration AND the muscles in your hand get a great workout.
I have actually found its easier to break it into smaller pieces and soak it in warm water...
We've made lots of things with beeswax...but one of the main things we use it for is to make numbers for our schoolwork. We save them and bring them out and make other numbers...its pretty fun. Below are some of Gator's numbers..
