Children ages three and up will enjoy this hands on activity that will teach them a wide variety of shapes. Your kids will enjoy the sensory experience of learning shapes with 16 brightly colored rubbing plates. Teachers and therapists will appreciate the thick durable construction of each plate. They will stand up to several years of use in your classroom or therapy center.
To use just place a sheet of paper over the plate and let kids color over the designs with crayons, chalk, or markers to reveal a simple shape that features an interesting textured pattern. This fun activity is great for building hand eye coordination and also helps fine motor skills. To facilitate even more fine motor development encourage your kids to cut out the shapes when they are done.
You can use this as a fun free time activity or for one of your early education centers.
