The Ice Cream Sensory Kit is inspired by Fox Tales: The Giant Ice Cream Mess by Tina Kügler. It is a cute graphic novel about trying new things.
When Fritz and Franny, competitive fox siblings, hear the ice cream truck they begin imagining the wonderful, sweet treat they will get. However, when they’re finally ready to order there’s a problem. You’ll love snuggling up with your kids and reading this book together.
Tina Kügler writes a cute tale that will encourage families to have conversations about trying new things and unexpected surprises.
|The base for this box includes three of our premium scented sensory doughs, including vanilla, chocolate, and our sweet citrusy twist on marshmallow pickle ripple.|
|For this kit, I wanted it to feel like kids had their very own ice cream shop in front of them, complete with toppings, cones, bowls, scoops, and a flavor board. The colorful ice cream bowl and scoop are perfect for creating large ice cream snacks with all the toppings and can even be washed and then used for a real ice cream treat later in the day.|
The Ice Cream sensory kit also includes many fun toppings for kids to explore and play with including cherries, strawberries, gummy bears, sprinkles, and more! These fun elements will inspire lots of imaginative play for all ages. Your kids will also love the mini chalkboard and chalk where they can draw, scribble, or write. Providing a fun way for kids to work on their pincer grasp and fine motor skills.
As with all Broccoli Boxes, we've also created a custom piece just for this kit, a clear ice cream cone, kids can cover with sensory dough and make their own creative cones. Personalized kits also include a laser-cut wooden ice cream cone with your child’s name on it.
|The 8-page parent guide that accompanies the Ice Cream Sensory Kit includes many ideas to spark simple, educational play and conversations with your kids. These suggestions will encourage your children to think, discuss, and explore.|
