Chalk Drop started as a monthly craft box subscription. Our focus on modelling materials came about when researching the educational benefits of playing with playdough. We kept on discovering more and more types of dough, clay and related products made from foam, cornstarch, and all sorts of materials. Some of these are not widely known or available, especially in the Australian market. To address this, Chalk Drop's first product on launching was the Clay Club which is a simple method for Australian parents to discover new ways their children can demonstrate their imagination and creativity every month.
