Melissa & Doug
A perfect first manipulative! Five two-sided boards with ten recessed design templates are ready to fill with these brightly coloured geometric shapes. Complete the pictures, or create your own designs and matching activities. Everything stores neatly in the sturdy wooden storage box.
Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
• Choose a block and show it to the child. Identify its shape and colour. Ask the child to select a matching block. Repeat the activity until the child recognizes the shapes and colours of all the blocks.
• Ask the child to hand you a specific colour and/or shape block. Repeat the activity until the child is able to identify each shape and colour independently.
• Ask the child to place the blocks on a flat surface and create a unique geometric design.
• Trace the shapes on paper. Ask the child to colour in each outline to match the piece in the set.
