The game set contains a bag of 60 couloured beads (10 red, 10 orange, 10 green, 10 blue, 10 yellow, 10 purple), 1 coloured die and 2 string ropes (specially designed for a pleasant and comfortable stringing process).
* fine finger muscles (for language development) * accuracy of grip and hand movement * eye to hand cooperation
To make it easier and more comfortable, we recommend pouring the beads from the bag in a wide, flat container or a basket for easier access and easier view of all of the colours.
Once the stringing skill has been mastered, introduce the child with systematization and colour learning with the string - let’s string only the blue beads, then all of the green ones, then the red ones etc. They can be systemized not only on the string, but in separate containers as well (like large cups, small baskets, or trays, for example).
An interesting task for training focus and attention: - one of the adults strings a certain colour rhythm on their rope and the child repeats it exactly on his rope. In the beginning, the colour rhythm can be quite simple (e.g. 2 green beads, 2 red ones, 2 green, 2 red... etc.) Over time, the rhythm complexity increases. This way, the child also develops counting skills as well.
A game for two players: - divide the set of beads in two identical parts. Both players take turns rolling the die. Whichever colour falls, the player places the bead of that colour on their string. If there are no such colour beads left, then the player skips their turn. The winner is the first one to have their string full of beads. An interesting addition to the game is to name an object in a colour that the die shows when rolled before stringing the bead on the string.
Another game to strengthen counting skills for preschool children: (The game also requires a second die with dots.) Two players take turns throwing the dice. Depending on the number of points scored, that amount of beads must be placed on the string. The winner of the game is the one who has more beads on their string. We start paying attention to such concepts as “more” and “less”.
Another crafty idea - we recommend using number stickers which can be glued on the included die. You can start with 1, 2, 3 in the beginning... so that the game does not seem too difficult for the little one. Later you can gradually add the remaining digits - 4 ... 5 ... 6. Let’s learn numbers and colours!
We sincerely wish you good luck and joyful moments playing together.
