Autumn ForestRaduga Grez £33.15
Forest set is ideal to feel calm in a turbulent time.
Our trees are little reminders for children and adults. They say that tiny seeds can give life to really tall and strong trees.
How to play:
- Take the Forest set with you for a walk in the park and find matching leafs or trees
- Lay a green scarf on the floor, it will be the grass. Use threads and twines as paths and a blue ribbon as a river. Inhabit your forest with toy animals
- Decorate trees with seasonal décor: stick small snowflakes on them in winter or golden leaves in autumn
Why we love blocks
Like puzzle pieces, blocks fit together. Unlike puzzle pieces, they can do so in a variety of ways. Learning to predict what fits where is the work of many years. Which pieces will I need? Do I have enough? The expert can see simply by turning the blocks over in her mind.
Small world play
Is your castle missing a section of wall? Does your railway need a tunnel? Never fear! Here is your humble set of blocks to the rescue. Infinitely versatile, blocks provide the canvas upon which to paint your stories.
Red, blue, red, blue; big, small, big, small. So much of early mathematical thinking is about making patterns. Can you see how it's a small skip from here to odds and evens or the two-times table? A set of blocks like the one above can even illustrate a number's relative size and how it can be combined to make ten.
