The Sun strainer is designed to extend fizz, potion, mud kitchen, sand, water and really any sensory play by providing a place to observe a little longer. A pause. After watching my child's play for many years. There was always a frenzied excitement to fizz play that see's lots of water poured over very quickly and sometimes this means ingredients disappear faster than we would have liked. A keen observer he would then ask for more, more, more.... so enter the strainer collection. A perfectly sized spot to hold PlayFizz and provide opportunity to watch it bubble, react and fizz a little longer and collect the crystals and botanicals. It also serves as a functional tea strainer and would be perfect for bush kindy cuppas.
It is designed to fit perfectly atop the leaf cup and treasure bowl.
Designed in Australia. Ethically and lovingly hand-carved, hand-sanded & hand-polished by Vietnamese artisans in a traditional craft village preserving ancient skills and providing income.
This one can be hung up by the handy hand holes when not in play.
CARING FOR YOUR WOODEN ITEMS
Our wooden items have been handcrafted and are waxed with food-grade wax. To keep your wood looking its best:
- Do not leave submerged in water for a really long time ( like a week) - play is ok and hang it up to dry after.
- Dry with a tea towel after getting wet
- Then keep it beautiful with a rub of bee's wax or vegetable oil into the wood to avoid the fibres lifting.
- Only use mild dishwashing detergent if needed
- Never put wood in the dishwasher
We work with a small Vietnamese enterprise that promotes Vietnamese handicrafts ensuring stability in the industry, work from home opportunities for young mothers and protection for traditional skills and crafts.
