I love that the product is made with real soil – it’s the ultimate in sustainability and both comes from the earth and goes back to the earth. I also love the idea of bringing nature closer to children through the use of mud playdough!

The MakeMud Soil Playdough Powder is a great way to have some nature play without having to worry about too much mess. It was easy to wash this sensory play base off your hands and wipe off the table! I also love that the soil within this Playdough powder is sourced right in the studio’s backyard and that only renewable and natural ingredients are used.

We had so much fun making this one and getting messy outside allowing the kids to use their imagination. It was great that it arrived in mindful packaging too with a fully compostable pouch that we can cut up and put in compost after – extra learnings for the kids around the life of a product and impact it has after usage!

I also love how simple it is using uncomplicated ingredients or packaging that is kind to the earth after usage.
