We are so excited to be featuring and supporting two Black-owned and women-run businesses through this special limited edition "The Skin I'm In" bundle. Destiny from Capptivating Play and Michelle (along with her husband Marc) from Montessori in Color are two fellow mama entrepreneurs who we really admire and wanted to feature in our shop through their products.
- a set of 4 skin dough play dough jars (6 oz. each) made by Capptivating Play
- 2 "Feelin' My Hair" dough cutters that celebrate beautiful hairstyles and help instill confidence and self-love from Montessori in Color
- 2 laminated play dough mats
- accompanying children's book recommendations and resources to give learning extensions for families and educators created by Present Not Perfect
This set is all about teaching kids how to love themselves, just the way they are, and build confidence! We want to empower kids (and their grown-ups, too) to think critically about the messages they receive regarding self-image and be able to develop empathetic and conscious responses towards those around them.
Activism can look like play. We know representation matters and that children learn and absorb these messages from very early on. We hope these resources help spark conversation and connection with your family and celebrate what makes you unique.
We will be donating 15% of the sales of this product to The Progress Center for Black Women right here in Madison, WI. This non-profit's goal is to make Dane County a more equitable and thriving place for Black women. They support Black women and families through a variety of services and educational opportunities.
Dough cutters are approximately 2.5 inches in size and made of food grade PLA filament and can be hand washed.
Non-toxic play dough by Capptivating Play includes wheat and coconut as allergens. Salt crystals are natural and may form on the playdough. Knead dough to dissolve crystals. Add a few drops of water if needed. Dough will last 3+ months if kept in jar or air tight bag for storage. Ages 3+ only . Always supervise children during play.
