Recognize color nuances

Objective: Promote color perception

Material: Small clothespins, basket, cards with different fruits and color nuances, laminator*, scissors

Preparation: Cards with different fruits and a selection of 3 color nuances of the fruit are created, printed, cut out and laminated. On the back of each card, for example, a dot is used to mark which is the correct color so that the child has a self-check function. Small clothespins are then placed in a basket and this is placed next to the stack of fruit cards on the tray.

Execution: The child takes a card from the pile and clips the clothespin to the correct color on the lower part of the card. This requires a very close look, as the 3 colors at the bottom of the card are very similar. Then the card can be turned over and checked using the dot to see if the clothespin is in the right place.

Laying the tangram


Objective: Promote shape perception

Material: Tangram*, tangram cards, basket

Preparation: All tangram pieces are mixed and placed in a basket. The cards and solution cards are placed on the tray. If desired, the pattern and solution cards can be glued to each other with the pattern on the front and the solution on the back of the card.

Execution: The child uses the tangram pieces to copy the template cards. Smaller children can also first take only the solution cards and replicate them. Older children take the practice cards, put them back and can then compare the solution cards to see if the tangram was placed correctly.
