Seriously. I have nothing more to add . . . other than I actually used it as a baby toy, too! I encouraged Naomi to play with the larger parts of this wood toy. No toxic stuff to worry about as it is made from Eco-friendly rubberwood and stained with low VOC aniline dyes.
Like I was saying, Mama Jenn has come up with the way to play with Guidecraft’s latest creative wood toy (a big whoop for wood toys!). Using Education Cubes she has created a great learning game that you can learn more about here. (Maybe she will let me try it out . . . hint . . . hint . . .hint.)
The boys “tolerated” me teaching them about fractions . . . but the real fun began when I just let them play.
- They created Cair Paravel (from The Chronicles of Narnia, which we are reading as a family.)
- sorted by color
- discussed and decided which shape was larger (Yes, that’s my dog’s paw.)
- built towers
- made music
Basically we turned this math toy into an everything toy! In fact, it is so pretty, you could use it as a decoration for your house. (Kind of.) Just kidding. (Kind of.)
And now you have the chance to go win and receive both the Fraction Action Board and a set of Fraction Cups over at guess who’s website? Mama Jenn!
