Do your kids like to sculpt and play with molding compounds? If so have you tried Hey Clay? Hey Clay is non-toxic clay with a soft, lightweight, smooth foam-like texture that does not smell, stain or cause a mess. (Which is a huge bonus for parents!). Hey Clay is pretty amazing stuff, you really have to try it to know what I am talking about!
Hey Clay is designed to spark your child’s creative potential and develop hand-eye coordination. As a parent of children with ADHD and Anxiety, this is also a great calming tool. Modeling/molding compounds have been shown to help kids/adults who have trouble with impulsivity, distractibility, and anxiety. It functions similar to a stress ball. The act of smooshing and squishing it between your fingers then sculpting it into something only a kids imagination can decipher, is very relaxing. Kids gain confidence as they create these works of art to display for all to see. It is a fun activity to do with the whole family.
Starting September 9th, participating Co-op food stores in Western Canada are offering a free pack of Hey Clay with every $25 purchase in store. There are 18 different colours to collect. You can even earn bonus packs with the purchase of weekly qualifying items. Each pack has a decent amount of Hey Clay to start building with. Collecting the packs and the excitement of opening each blind bag to see what color we got, was really fun last year. It made grocery shopping fun for my kids, as they learnt which items qualified for bonus packs and we worked together to find products we needed on our list.
Once home, they would spend hours playing with it and molding it into fun characters. I love how it is wheat-free, nut-free, latex-free and gluten-free unlike other molding compounds. This year we are getting the storage container to store all the clay in, to keep it from drying out when we are not ready to display our creation permanently (The clay hardens if left out for 24 hours).
If your kids get hooked on it like mine did, you can purchase the exclusive Hey Clay set and collectors boxes in participating Co-op stores. This years Co-op exclusive Hey Clay set is “Fruit and Veg friends”. There are 12 different fruits and vegetables to build: Clementine, Mr. Peel, Celly, Broccolina, Bluebree, Careoot, Ollie Flower, Susie le Plumme, Miss Pearson, Champignon, Raddie, Miss Berry Fields. This set is exclusive to Co-op stores.
To keep things extra fun they have also created a custom app for “how to sculpt videos”. The app provides easy, fun step-by-step instructions on how to create amazing characters. The app is available for Apple and Android users.
There is also a mobile game that you can play daily to earn FREE in-store prizes. Customers compete to match all 16 clay pieces on their board as fast as possible, with the fastest times earning the most points. Then they redeem their points for FREE product(s) in store. And who doesn’t like FREE!
The Hey Clay campaign will not run forever and quantities are limited, so you will need to stop by your local participating Co-op between September 9th and November 3rd to start collecting and building.
