These blocks are a huge helper for parents to train multiple necessary skills for their child! Skills like: * logical thinking, * comparison skills, * focus, attention, * patience, * understanding of colours, * 3 dimensional thinking, * movement coordination, * memory But most importantly - this game will bring joy to the child! He will work with these blocks himself, but the involvement of parents is crucial. The game can be diversified using the task cards included in the set. It is not so easy to put the blocks back in the box for the little one without an example!
Some active tasks for a joyful and exciting experience when working together:
1) You can be happy and proud if your toddler at the age of 2 can put the blocks with the pictures facing up, back into the box on the appropriate drawings.
2) A parent (or a teacher) finds 10 blocks - the largest of each colour. The child's task is to place the remaining blocks on top of the corresponding coloured blocks, creating colour pairs.
3) Offer the child to sort the blocks by size and count how many blocks there are in each pile. Which stack is bigger, which is smaller?
4) Put the blocks in the box with the coloured side up and then remove one block. Which colour block is missing? Which colour doesn't have a pair?
5) Memory training game: turn all the blocks with the coloured side facing up. Name aloud one of the previously learned animals, that the child needs to find. The block with a correctly named animal may then be placed in a box on the appropriate drawing. If a block happens to be not the correct one, it needs to be turned back and the search continues. Older children can compete - by taking turns, who can remember and guess the most blocks?
6) Putting the blocks back in the box without an example of how to do so is not so easy! There are two possible variants of tasks: First, when training your memory, put the blocks back into the box, remembering the example which was given. Second - think of your own way of how to put all of the blocks in the box, without any example at all (which will be more difficult).
7) Until the age of 3, children mostly learn by imitating adults, older siblings. Therefore, we suggest doing the tasks in front of the child and then have them repeat it.
Older children should try to solve the included tasks independently.
