The packaging peanut are biodegradable.  They are derived from starch, so if you or your have a corn or similar allergy, best to avoid these.  Please reach out to us if it is a problem!

 

To make a creation, take a small bowl of water and dap a bit of water onto the peanut.  Your child can build anything they want with it.  Add some paint or color with markers for some added fun!

Here are some ideas:

  • Igloo
  • Polar Bear
  • Snowman
  • Catepillar
