    Whenever considering experiences for children of any age, preface it with the impact that materials procured will have in the long term. In other words do we value experiences for children that may only last seconds or a very short time, over long term negative impacts i.e. say of plastic straws that find themselves either in landfill or oceans. Unless you can thoughtfully re-use or dispose of the raw materials chosen i.e. ( remains part of ‘economic loop’), then consider alternatives.
