Welcome to Outta The Box. Our themed sensory kits are created with the utmost care geared to facilitate your child’s imagination, sense of order, language and fine motor development.
Owner, Deidre Blair, has a background in early childhood development and earned her certification as a Montessori directress during college. She has been involved in multiple facets with small children for over 30 years. She has consulted parents over the years on how to successfully parent.
Deidre’s biggest mission is to get children off iPhone’s and iPads and replace those devices with sensory activities. These kits are a good place to start. When your child is kneading play dough, the sensory input enhances brain power. Add some wonderful treasures with play dough and “voila” your child is now focused on their purposeful play while using their own imagination.
Give a child that suffers from anxiety, or isolation during this pandemic and watch their eyes light up. You will find it hard to pull your child away from a kit, as they delight in it. A toy is one object your child interacts with. A kit creates interaction that leads a child into story building. Pick your kit, or a jar of Dough To Go!
Recently Deidre decided to pursue opportunities to create purposeful play for young children. Children today are being lead into a digital world that does not enhance any development of their sensory needs.
Hand your child a jar of scented dough and let them lead you into their world of imagination. Observe, listen and let your child create. Let’s get playing.
