Mod­el­ing is an impor­tant tool for the devel­op­ment of the baby at an ear­ly stage of his growth. With reg­u­lar work with the test, the child’s motor skills quick­ly improve, and new infor­ma­tion is absorbed much more eas­i­ly. In order to choose the right dough or mod­el­ing kit, you should find out what char­ac­ter­is­tics to pay atten­tion to, what age it is suit­able for and what tools are need­ed so that the baby sculpts with plea­sure with you.

Play­ing with mod­el­ing dough devel­ops the child’s brain. Many moth­ers can con­firm: mod­el­ing helps chil­dren mem­o­rize new words. Games not only devel­op the baby, but also drag them into the process for a long time — get­ting to know new sizes, giv­ing them dif­fer­ent shapes through spe­cial molds and tools. And how inter­est­ing it is some­times just to mix col­ors and see what hap­pens in the end! Such activ­i­ties will help to spend time with inter­est not only for the child, but for the whole fam­i­ly.

Test fea­tures to look out for

In order for the dough to please your chil­dren from the very first use, do not for­get to study the impor­tant qual­i­ties that an ide­al mod­el­ing mass should have.

1) Com­po­si­tion

From the first days of life, we strive to give the kids the best. This also applies to mate­ri­als for cre­ativ­i­ty — the bet­ter the com­po­si­tion, the less like­ly it is that play­ing with dough can be unsafe.

What do we advise you to pay atten­tion to? Mod­el­ing dough should con­tain a min­i­mum of ingre­di­ents: water, salt, flour, food pig­ments and should not con­tain haz­ardous com­po­nents (for exam­ple, plas­tics). Such a dough is com­plete­ly nat­ur­al and allowed for young chil­dren, it will not harm the baby when work­ing with it, espe­cial­ly if the child acci­den­tal­ly decides to try a piece.

Jovi’s mod­el­ing dough has a sim­i­lar com­po­si­tion, suit­able even for aller­gy suf­fer­ers, since it does not con­tain gluten prod­ucts (for exam­ple, wheat), which some man­u­fac­tur­ers add to the dough. Also, the Jovi dough is very salty — this is made specif­i­cal­ly so that the child does not have the desire to eat the com­po­nents for cre­ativ­i­ty.

2) Smell

Think back to your child­hood. How often have you want­ed to taste some­thing so pleas­ant­ly smelling, but ined­i­ble? So our lit­tle chil­dren some­times strive to bite off a piece of dough if it smells of per­fume. Pay atten­tion to the smell — the dough should have a min­i­mal aro­ma, in no case chem­i­cal and not with the smell of prod­ucts. So you can be sure that the baby will not have an idea to taste the goods for cre­ativ­i­ty.

3) Qual­i­ty of adhe­sion

When play­ing with dough, the child should be com­fort­able work­ing with min­i­mal pres­sure — small hands are not yet able to exert much effort to hold the parts togeth­er. Roll up a few pieces and try to light­ly squeeze togeth­er. This way you will see if your baby will suc­ceed.

4) Dry­ing speed

How reusable the mate­r­i­al will be — it is the dry­ing para­me­ter that can answer this ques­tion. If the dough with the cor­rect com­po­si­tion is reg­u­lar­ly cleaned in a sealed pack­age after the game, then it will last longer and please the child for many hours.

Hav­ing select­ed the dough for mod­el­ing accord­ing to these para­me­ters and hav­ing played with the child, in a few min­utes you will notice the result — the remains of the dough on the table, clothes and car­pet. Don’t wor­ry about clean­ing up — Jovi dough is easy to clean with a damp sponge, leav­ing no residue on sur­faces.

If you want to add more vari­ety to your games with your child or are look­ing for the per­fect gift for lit­tle craft lovers, then be sure to check out the ready-made kits. Usu­al­ly in such sets, man­u­fac­tur­ers try to add more col­ors, molds and stacks that will help the kids with their work. The Zoo mod­el­ing kit has every­thing for cre­ativ­i­ty: molds in the form of ani­mals, mul­ti-col­ored stacks, curly syringes for mod­el­ing and even an oil­cloth for the work sur­face. Molds will sim­pli­fy the cre­ation of ready-made fig­ures, and work­ing with stacks will allow the baby to get used to hold­ing objects in his hand and will devel­op the wrist joint. If you are wor­ried that such acces­sories may seem unin­ter­est­ing to the child, then you can buy them sep­a­rate­ly from the set and see what the child will like more. Mod­el­ing syringes or small mini kits with a rolling pin are per­fect for exper­i­ments.

By choos­ing Jovi play dough, you choose the con­fi­dence in the qual­i­ty devel­op­ment and joy of your baby. Joint cre­ativ­i­ty will leave a child with not only won­der­ful fig­ures from the dough, but also mem­o­ries of the time with you!
