Details: Pattern Board - such a simple but engaging game of matching colors. Watch your little explorer delight in fitting the tiny balls onto the pattern board. Watch as problem solving becomes a part of play; finding the way to mimic what’s seen on the pattern card. Watch fine motor skill building fit into the challenge. Pinch. Grab. Balance. Place. Next, please!
This little board is a grow-with-me game. Preschoolers can begin by picking up the balls with their pincer grasp and fitting them into the board. They can dictate color names and count the balls as the board fills up. They can try their beginning skills at using the wooden tongs to grip the balls and transfer them gently….As they grow they will get more steady with their fingers, and more coordinated with their placements. They can create simple patterns of their own or try to replicate the patterns on the pattern cards. A game of agility and skill building, this little pattern board can later turn into the classic game of tic-tac-toe.
The Pattern Board is another Mama May i open-ended classic, sure to pique your little one’s balancing ability. It will have little fingers trying to create order and little minds trying to make sense of their world.
