With its pleasant beeswax scent and perfectly clean handling, Stockmar modelling beeswax is an ideal material for modelling.
Children in Waldorf kindergartens and within Waldorf curricullums are encouraged to play with the wax when sitting and listening to stories. They can start as early as 3.
It's great for the dexterity and an excellent exploration of the senses. It's great on long car trips for kids to play with on their own or for the non-driving parent in the front seat to take requests from the wee passengers and model up cute animals to make the miles go by a little quicker - see the photos below :)
The warmth of the hands melts the wax and makes it malleable and when the wax hardens, the luminosity and fine brilliance remain. The little works of art maintain their beauty and charm and can be reshaped again and again.
It doesn't stick to the floor or to skin. It is neat and tidy and so much fun - for children and those who clean up after them. Modelling wax is the perfect activity to keep little hands busy, allowing the mind to focus and the ears to listen, while listening to stories and music, or driving in the car.
