VegetablesRaduga Grez £33.15
With a Vegetable set you can feed dolls, make a farmer’s market or a kitchen garden on a crumpled blanket. Play with vegetables, touch them, spin them, draw from life and decorate your room with them!
These wooden vegetables are a good idea to keep your child busy for 20 minutes while you are cooking. They also can teach a child to love healthy food.
How to play:
- Put vegetables into a bag and identify them by touching
- Lay out the vegetables on the counter, come with a shopping bag, learn basics of counting and how to behave at the shop or farmer’s market
- Make a fairytale about vegetables becoming alive. What character does an eggplant have? What can make a carrot laugh? Who offended a tomato?
- Make a home theatre performance with vegetables as main characters
- Try to build a vegetable tower
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.
