Duplo recreation part 2 – bricks of the same size

 

Objective: Promote color and shape perception

Material: Colorful small Duplo, colorful paper, white paper, glue, laminator*, basket

Preparation: The white paper is cut into long strips, a little narrower than A5 size. From the colored paper, cut out parts in the same size as the small Duplo bricks. Then the colorful parts are celted onto the paper like towers. The whole thing is then laminated to last longer and the corners are rounded after lamination, so that the child can not hurt him/herself on the sharp corners. All Duplo bricks are placed in a basket, which is then placed on a tray along with the template cards.

Execution: The child chooses a pattern that he or she would like to copy and builds the tower with the Duplo bricks. Afterwards, the tower can be placed on the template card to check whether it is correct.
When the child is finished, he/she puts all the Duplo bricks back into the basket and onto the tray together with the template cards.
Note: For “Duplo recreation part 1” see page “Visual perception – 33 months”.
