Melissa and Doug Water Wow! Makeup and Manicures
The Melissa and Doug Water Wow range are books that contain reusable pictures. Simply fill the pen with water and colour over the outlines to reveal colour and patterns. Leave it for a few minutes and the colour fades away, ready to be used again. This Water Wow! Pad has four pages featuring lots of makeup and manicures.
On each page, there’s a visual list of items that can be found once the picture is fully revealed. So, for example, on the first page, the child has to find 4 diamontes, 3 feathers and 11 love hearts. This helps draw the activity out but also helps your child learn to count and observe. It’s also great for developing their problem-solving skills.
The water pen comes in an enclosed area in the cover, where it can be placed back in, for safe keeping. It’s easy for an adult to fill the pen, but harder for small hands, which means that messes can be avoided. Using the pen to keep within the lines will help your child’s fine motor skills.
This is a great pad to bring out if you are going to a coffee shop and want a few minutes of peace. It’s not large or bulky and would fit into most handbags.
This is part of Melissa and Doug Toy’s ‘On the Go’ range as they are suitable for travel and out and about.
