Do your kids drive you CRAZY with how much they fidget? 

Guess what? 

All that movement is helping your kids learn! That's right: Research shows sensory toys and fidget objects help kids with fine motor skills, stress relief, and productivity.

My kids love all things fidget. One of their favorites? Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty

It's really just fun to play with. There are no rules, no directions, and no wrong ways to play with Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty.

Founder Crazy Aaron puts it best:

“You know it's working when you don’t realize you’re playing with it.” 

As a mom, two of my favorite things about Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty? It's non-toxic and it doesn't dry out! It has a silicone base so even if they leave the lid off (and really when do they not?) it won't dry out and be ruined.

 I also love the different Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty effects! From glitter to color changing to magnetic magic ... there's really a Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty for every occasion and every interest! There are more than 30 effects.

While the perfect fidget tool, Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty can be used for much more! Here are five simple games you can play with Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty:

1. Rip It!

Set a 1-minute timer and then rip or snap off as many pieces of Thinking Putty as possible. Try to beat your own record or challenge a friend. This is a great way to build fine motor skills without even knowing it!

2. Pop It!

Create bubbles in your Thinking Putty (learn some different methods here) and then pop them. See how many pops you can make in a minute, how loud a pop you can make, or how big a bubble you can make before it pops. How to make it pop?

Simply form a small, thumb-sized cavity and fold the putty over and onto itself. Squeeze the putty to force a bubble to form. In a quick motion, pop the bubble for a refreshing snap! Just like this:

Once you start, you can't stop! (I might know that through my own experience...)

Sneak peek! 

Crazy Aaron loves popping putty so much, he’s created Popp’n Thinking Putty, which is made to crackle, pop, and snap! Take a look at the two new Thinking Putty tins coming in August! Save 15% by using code MACKID at checkout!

3. Tin It to Win It!

Remove the putty from the tin and split in half – one half for each player. Place the bottom of the empty Crazy Aaron’s putty tin on a flat surface and try to land balls of putty into the tin in just one bounce! The first to catch the putty 5 times wins and gets to go CRAZY!

4. Arch It!

Split your Thinking Putting into 1/3 and 2/3 sections and create an arch with the bigger section. Stand the arch up to create a target and roll the smaller section into a ball. Set a 1 minute timer and see how many times you can roll the ball through the arch before time runs out. If your arch melts too fast, make it bigger, but do it quickly because time is running out! 

See Crazy Aaron do it here with help from the Ultimate Putty Challenge game:

5. Tic-Tac-Toe It!

Create a tic-tac-toe grid with tape or roll your putty into snakes! Then use Thinking Putty to make Xs and Os to use as markers.
