Hide N’ Seek N’ Stretch N’ Strengthen!
Play hide-and-seek with our therapy putty! Discovery Putty is the playful way to strengthen hands and improve fine motor planning. Use this high quality professional putty in the classroom, clinic or at home. Stretch, mold and pull the putty until you find all the hidden objects -- then hide them all over again. The white putty with white pieces offers an increased challenge because it relies on feel more than vision to find each piece. Build speech and language as you identify each piece, including a snowman, ice skates, polar bear and other winter-themed objects. Not for mouthing or chewing. Use with adult supervision.
