Wooden Stampers Set - Transport
The transport stamper set is great fun for use in sand, in playdough or as a puzzle activity. Its super versatile too! One stamp is engraved with a transportation image (thick enough to make an impression), and its matching cutout fits over the layered transport image like a puzzle. There are 10 transport stamps in the set – Truck, Motorbike, Airplane, Tractor, Bicycle, Boat, Lawnmover, Train, Bus and Car.
Recommended age 3+. Includes 10 transport cards and their 10 matching cutouts (20 pieces total). Approx. 8 x 6 cm, made with 3mm sustainable plywood and come in a linen drawstring bag.
Every piece of wood used is slightly different in colour, texture and grain with naturally occurring imperfections seen in the timber (e.g knots, colour changes, etc). These pieces of timber are cut on an engraver and will have slight burnt marks on the edges on some sides. The best way to keep these raw timber resources hydrated and well-nourished is with a natural oil or wax, like beeswax polish.
Use at the play dough table or at the art area, encourage the child to make an artwork with the stamps, engage in conversation about what he/she is making, and discuss the vehicles, sounds they make, where they can be found, what they do, etc.
Art group activity, could extend on the sustainability and look for natural resources to play such as sand. Great for educating about vehicle names, and open discussions about transportation and movement.
