Getting Started

Therapists, teachers and parents share multiple uses for Discovery Putty.  For example,  develop 1 to 1 correspondence with a number board, and count each found object. Encourage speech by describing in a sentence. Match objects to pictures of the objects. Identify first, middle or end sounds of the objects with a letter sound board.

Discovery Putty is available in four varieties:

Transportation Station play putty has 12 hidden pieces including a police car, fire truck, race car, bicycle, sailboat, motorcycle, ship, ambulance, dump truck, skateboard and airplane, in orange putty (soft resistance).

School Tools play putty has 13 hidden pieces including a school building, globe, bus, paper, computer, pencil, crayon, lunch box, backpack, calculator, ruler and apple, in red putty (extra soft resistance).

    My son loves anything that he’s to do with vehicles, so this has been a big hit! The putty is a little harder than I expected, since it’s labeled as soft. Overall, I think it’s a great tool for fine motor skill work. I will likely purchase more.

    Excellent 'hard work' activity
    Verified Purchase
    My son (5) struggles with finger strength and handwriting. I got this for him and as he started to use it, I was afraid he would give up because it was hard, but he was so determined to get all of these little guys out and then to manipulate it and put them back. I had never seen him use his fingers like this. It was great. I sent this to school with him and now his teacher has ordered the entire discovery putty kit.

    This is exactly like silly putty which you can buy for less money. Best part about this toy is that it has all the little pieces that kids can hide and find. Makes this toy have greater purpose and interest. Toy pieces are small so beware if you have young kids and don't be surprised if you end of losing some after a while unless you closely monitor your child.

    like that the pieces are on the larger side - good for kiddo to play with - yet there was not enough putty to put all the pieces in. also, the pieces that have a white side - the putty does stick to it. so the pieces do not come out clean like they tell you. there was a bonus in this kit - a tractor!

    The BEST!
    Discovery Putty is the best....THE BEST! Kids at my gym LOVE it and don't even understand that they are working on SO many occupational therapy goals when playing with it. I've spent my career hiding things in theraputty to work on increasing grasp strength. Kids got bored pretty quickly with the coins I would stick in the putty. When I found Discovery Putty things changed. Kids love looking through the putty to find the different treats or animals hidden inside. In addition to working on increasing grasp strength and fine motor skills, Discovery Putty works on improving bilateral coordination skills, focus and attention and language skills (identifying what they have discovered in the putty).

  • Answered Questions
    Where is this putty made? What are the ingredients?
    How do you get this off clothes?
    Is it gluten free?
    Seems to me the treasures looking like edible treats would lead to kids putting them in their mouths???
    What are the different resistances helpful in? How do I decide which type of resistance to choose?
