Sorting and counting is loads of fun when you use open ended wooden playsets like this sort and scoop spice pot set. Play is limited only by the imagination.

{Ways to learn through play:}

• Your little one can play with these rainbow coloured pots in a play kitchen. Remove the acorn lid and shake your spices into the small mixing bowl. Toss in the spice pot acorn tops for a pretend play nutty flavour. Removing and replacing the acorn tops into the pots helps to further develop fine motor skills.

• Have your little one to work on their dexterity skills by getting them to hold the acorn tops, point down, and spin them like a spin top. Challenge them to find out what colour spins faster. (note: colour has no effect on the spin time, but they don't need to know that yet)

• Play stacking games with the pots and see how high of a tower you can build with them. This also helps to develop gross motor skills.

• 6 acorn tops, one in each colour
• 6 pots, one in each colour
• 1 natural maple wooden bowl
• 1 scoop
• canvas bag to put it all in

    One Tree Planted is a 501c3 nonprofit that plants
    trees around the world. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time.
    Every $1 donated helps plant 1 tree. It's that simple. They also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.  They believe that businesses can be advocates for sustainability.

    And so do we. As a business that relies on trees for its handcrafted goods, the least we can do is to ensure that we are using sustainable practices including making sure that the pine, aspen and maple we use are reforested for the next generations to enjoy. 

    And as One Tree Planted so nicely puts it, 
    By supporting tree-planting, businesses show that they are leaders in creating a healthier world in which humanity, nature, and wildlife can thrive. 

    So why did we choose to go with a USA based tree planting charity instead of Canadian based? The answer is simple. This charity is able to plant 1 tree for $1 US dollar here in Canada. Canadian charities start at $3.99 per tree. Sure, it means that we cannot use anything we donate to the USA charity for tax break purposes - but that is not the point. We want to help replant what we use so that future generations can enjoy the trees too. With this charity along with your help, we can do more with less.

    Most items are handcrafted for you when you order it. This time of year we do have some ready to stock items. Local pickup is available for last minute gifts.

    Current creation times as of February 14, 2020:

    most items: 3 - 7 business days depending upon items

    custom name puzzles: 2-3 weeks
