Open-Ended Play Preschool Bundle
*Retail Value of $83 bundled for $75*
Give the gift of PLAY. We’ve gathered our favorite, most versatile play materials for your preschooler. From handcrafted peg dolls to a mindful drawing board, these unique items will inspire open-ended play for years to come. Open-ended toys can be explored, manipulated, and transformed by your child’s body and imagination. Rather than having one specific purpose, these play materials serve as tools to support and deepen your child’s play.
Eric Thrall invented the Buddha Board as a way to help people embrace the concept of mindfulness. His drawing board is both a meditative product and a doodling tool. When you paint on the Buddha Board surface with water, the image darkens. As the water evaporates, the artwork slowly fades. What’s left is a blank slate—literally and figuratively. When the water disappears, so do the feelings and emotions that went into the artwork, leaving the artist with a clear mind.
