Digging for Treasure

Digging for treasure is one of life's greatest pleasures, and this invitation to play is always a hit with children young and old. Fill a vessel of your choice with the golden rice, burying the treasure within. Leave it out for your child to discover, and watch the magic unfold.


This invitation to play offers opportunities for refining fine motor skills, as your child works their finger and thumb muscles to pick out the treaures. You can encourage early language development by describing the pieces your child finds, and early mathematical concepts by sorting and counting. The loose parts can be added to your small world play, used to enrich your play dough or sand/water play, or added to seasonal displays.


This collection includes:

A small stainless steel bowl containing over 30 loose part 'treasures'

250g of hand dyed golden yellow rice, in a paper bag

a small 3" wooden scoop


Wooden bowl NOT included.


PLEASE NOTE: This invitation contains small loose parts which may present a choking hazard to children under 36 months, or those inclined to put things in their mouths. Please supervise young children closely.
