Have you seen or used Magic Nuudles before? I hadn't heard of them until recently. There were a few reasons I really wanted the boys to give them a try. They are bright, colourful and interesting but also they are made from cornstarch and are fully biodegradable! Wow! They are also so different to all of the other arts and craft materials we have tried before. I couldn't wait to see how the boys would use them!
Our pack came with 400 Magic Nuudles. They are perfect for children from 3 years and up. The pack comes with an awesome instruction manual. It is amazing what you can build with the Magic Nuudles (you can see some examples here at the bottom of the page), however, we really love how open ended they are and the boys just like to tinker and create away. There are lots of printables available that you can see Otis using above and below.
You can twist, mould, shape and cut the Nuudles. Each Magic Nuudle needs to be moistened (there is a sponge in the pack) to adhere to paper, other Nuudles or the magic paper. Then you can press them together or onto the paper!
We've really enjoyed the educational benefits of the Magic Nuudles. They are great for developing fine motor skills and they can also be used as a tool to teach or explore patterning, construction, numeracy and literacy. Below Otis is building a house with walls, windows, and a door.
Magic Nuudles are perfect to have on hand for a rainy or sick day, school holidays or to present simply in a tray on the children's shelves. They would make a really fun gift! Also suitable for school or daycare arts and crafts!
