“In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf...”*
And so begins the story of the very hungry caterpillar’s journey to becoming a beautiful butterfly. Using these handmade resources, your little one can learn all about the butterfly lifecycle through play.
Our lifecycle stamps can also be used in kinetic sand, air dry clay, salt dough and for baking (with a gentle wipe and re-oil afterwards). They are handmade from sustainably sourced pine, well sanded and finished with tung oil. The toppers are laser-cut birch ply. Each set is unique, due to the varieties of timber used.
Playdough rollers, caterpillars and playdough can be purchased separately.
We recommend pairing this set with eucalyptus and lemongrass playdough.
Recommended age 3+. Use under adult supervision. Not recommended for use as a teething or chew toy. Please do not leave story stones immersed in water or playdough. Whilst they are made for play and have been sealed to protect the paint, we recommend wiping them clean after play to prolong their life.
