Skwooshi Magic !!

My kids and I were recently given some Skwooshi, never heard of it ?  Think of play dough and Kinetic Sand combined and this stuff does not dry out – yes you heard me – you can leave it out for days and it is perfect.   I have to warn you though it is very addictive, once the kids start playing with it they will be lost for hours and adults ……….. if you are brave enough to try you will find yourself sitting with the kids playing along.

To start with both kids began using it like they would play dough – they rolled it, made shapes with it, used their play dough cutters and other goodies with it.

My son soon brought his Dinosaurs into the mix.  He used them to make footprints and create “fossils”, he used it in his Dinosaur play fights – honestly hours and hours of fun. Then he pulled the Skwooshi up and he saw the “waterfall effect” for the first time.  My son says it is Skwooshi rain and he loves it.

And once the kids experienced the “waterfall effect” they just could not stop.

So you are probably thinking okay what are the benefits.  Apart from the hours of imaginary play and keeping the kids occupied for a large portion of last week it is great for strengthening the kids fingers.  And for SPD kiddies like mine, both find it very relaxing to play with.  I personally think it makes a great sensory tool for SPD kiddies.

Benefits for us moms – it does not dry out !!!  I have tested this all week and honestly whether I leave it out during the day/night or whether I pack it away it is always ready for play.  Ours arrived in these great plastic containers which are perfect for storing it in.

Also the mess factor –  what mess ?  If small bits break off all you do get some of the Skwooshi in your hand and dab on the small bits and it magically sticks back together – no mess left.  Carpets – no issue at all.  My son did get some on our carpet and a quick dab and it lifted up without leaving any marks.

How much do we love it ?   We love it so much that Santa is going to be bringing each kiddie another tub.

If you are looking for some Skwooshi (or other fab kiddies goodies) have a look at ImagiDo website.
