Yellow Door: Feast of Nature Sensory Play Set. This exquisite set of sculptures cry out to be touched, held, and enjoyed. Their tactile nature is an invitation to sensory play; the mixture of shapes and textures gives good feedback to touch, as does the weighty feel, as the forms are made of a stone composite. Ideal to enrich sensory experiences, these calming sculptures fit snugly and reassuringly in a child’s hand. They are durable enough to be played with outside, including in sand, soil, mud, and water. They can be sorted and classified by different attributes, including colour, shape, and texture, leading to valuable discussion and vocabulary development. Comparisons with their real-life counterparts can lead to work on habitats, whether they are a safe food source and, if so, for who or what. This can lead to expeditions to find them in your local environment or shop and attempts to grow the edible ones in your setting for salads or soups.
The set consists of eight fruits of nature: acorn, squash, raspberry, blueberry, mushroom, pine cone, apple, and pear (max height and width of 50mm).
- Contains 8 fruits of nature made from a stone/resin mix
- Max size 50mm
- Age 3+
Passionate about play
Play is at the heart of everything Yellow Door do. As a publisher of award-winning, multisensory resources we believe that helping you to offer language-rich play environments is the best thing we can do together to enhance children’s learning, their wellbeing and their future success. Our range includes tactile resources, books and educational apps for children in the EYFS and those with SEND.
If we want children to be playful learners, we think we should set them a good example. At Yellow Door we have a lot of fun creating products and we love a challenge – whether it is working out how to create things out of stone; finding new materials to print on so our resources can be used outside all year round; or developing new features for our interactive software such as the facility for children to record their own stories.
Caring about quality
We work very hard to ensure the resources we create are properly fit for purpose. Take our Alphabet Pebbles, for example. Children love collecting pebbles and so we were excited when the very inspiring Helen Bromley first suggested this idea to us. However, we soon discovered it posed a challenge too. If you put anything on the surface of a stone, it can be ground off, especially when used in sand (just think for a moment about how sand is made). And who wouldn’t want to play with pebbles in the sand? So, our pebbles are specially cast with the letter shape engraved into the surface of the stone and paint applied to each indented letter by hand. We’ve been making them that way since 2008 because there is no other way to create a product that has all the natural appeal of real stone and will stand up to rigorous use throughout an early years environment. This means limitless play possibilities for the children and the complete reassurance of a durable product for you.
We are proud to be a member of BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association) and as well as abiding by their Code of Practice, we continue to take an active role in BESA’s Early Years Special Interest Group.
