Win a Pip & Plop creativity box!
We're giving away one of four subscriptions to the Pip & Plop creativity box for 3 months!

Creativity is now more important than ever. Focusing on creativity doesn't just help to develop cognitive, social and emotional skills, but it also improves your child's ability to analyse and solve problems.

Using a paint brush, for instance, encourages fine motor skills. Counting shapes and forms lay the building blocks of maths. Experimenting with different materials and the way they feel and react is an introduction to physical science. And when children create something they're proud of, it's fantastic for their self image.

It's important for us parents to expose our children to creative skills, and this is exactly what led to the development of the Pip & Plop creativity boxes. These boxes are sent monthly and focus on the different creative disciplines. Each contain a new story book, activity book, craft, colouring-in book and an instruction DVD to enable your child to learn through play and creativity. It's aimed at children from 3 to 6 years.

Each month's box cost R299.
