So my daughter just turned 3 and for the birthday she got Corn Pellets, better known as Magic Plasticine. She really wanted to play with them and so I thought it would be fun to make a youtube video showing the very first time she got to play with them.
At first she thought they were candy, though she never actually tried putting one in her mouth. I showed her how they worked with just one pellet and off she went. Even though she was 3 years old for only one day she could already totally play with them all by herself. She barely needed my help at all.
You can make a lot with them and it really sparks the imagination and creativity of your child. I do also think it’s a great sensory activity. Overall it’s very easy, it barely makes a mess and it’s just a lot of fun to do. All you need is the pellets and a wet sponge and you’re good to go.
Fingers did get sticky because of the pellets, everything that is wet will make the pellets sticky. I tried cleaning of our fingers and the place mat with some baby wipes and it worked like a charm.
So here is the video we made:
