EDX Education has come out with Rainbow Pebbles. They are a bunch of different shaped pebbles in rainbow colors. Perfect sizes for toddler hands. The one we got comes with 20 cards for your child to recreate. I have found they are a great way to help with counting, color recognition and sorting.
Our daughter has a little trouble with “does not belong” problems. She’d show which ones go together but didn’t quite grasp the idea of choosing which one didn’t go. I used these pebbles as a physical representation for her since she does better with hands-on work. After a few tries she got the idea and is well on her way to mastering this concept. One downside is I think the colors on the cards could be brighter. They seem a bit dark to me but my eyesight isn’t the best so it could just be me.
A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
