This beautiful set with its plywood base and colourful wooden balls provides a great starting point for all sorts of counting, number, sequencing and logic work. Children will enjoy the size and feel of the hardwood balls and quickly identify their properties. They can arrange them in patterns, in free play or in lines by colour. And because the balls are numbered – sequences can be made by number too. Children will also benefit from the work cards that accompany the set to create prescribed patterns with progressive challenges towards three-dimensional stacking. The set can be used by a single child, but when 2 children work together there is the added benefit of collaboration and conversation that will promote language development. The set comes with a play guide and a draw-string bag to place the balls into after use.
