What skills do children develop while playing with Playray Box?

Playray box has 4 components designed to stimulate children's early bond with nature.

By playing with the different elements of the Storytelling playmat, children develop their imagination, speech and fine motor skills.

Plant care has many proven benefits for children like assisting the fine motor skills, it's calming, helps to concentrate, builds responsibility, creates work habits.

The scavenger hunt helps children learn to search and find specific stuff and form a habit of preserving nature.

Reading to children improves their vocabulary, lets them dream, builds a strong parent-child relationship, helps kids sleep better and encourages them to fall in love with the magical world of books.

What is Zero Waste?

The Zero Waste lifestyle involves not only throwing our rubbish separately and recycling but also not generating any garbage at all.

Buying consciously and only what we really need and avoiding becoming an over-consumer society.

 

The Zero Waste concept is based on 5 principles/steps:

  1. to refuse what we do not need,
  2. 2. to reduce what we need,
  3. to reuse what we already have,
  4. to recycle or
  5. compost.

To avoid plastic packaging, all the elements of the Playray box are embraced in soft and delicate pure wool. You can use it for weaving or wet felting with kids or simply for decoration.

The components in our box are selected so that they can be used repeatedly. Animals from the "Storytelling playmat" can experience a variety of adventures as well as kids can add natural elements to the set, such as chestnuts for the squirrel or large stones for stones. We believe the book will become a child's favourite and you will want to read it again and again. "Discover Nature" focuses on the magical world around us. While studying around, children discover how interesting nature is. The search for specific natural elements helps children to love nature and creates a habit of preserving it. And what is better than growing a plant yourself? The peat pot is biodegradable and the pot saucer is made of cork so it can be used repeatedly, as well as composted.

 

And remember: “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions doing it imperfectly”.
