Discover Countless Ways To Play
Ask the child to build a tower with the blocks. Help him or her become familiar with the shapes and colors by identifying them as they are added to the tower. As play progresses, ask him or her to hand you a specific shape or color block.
Have a rolling contest; who can roll the shape sorter the farthest?
Encourage early counting skills by asking the child to count the shapes with you.
Time the child putting all the blocks into the shape sorter as fast as possible. Keep trying to improve his or her time!
Create a color pattern (for example: blue, orange, green) and ask the child to repeat it.
Place five shapes in a row and ask the child to studty them, then close his or her eyes. Remove one shape, then ask the child to look again and say which shape is missing.
About Melissa & Doug
Our mission is to provide a launch pad to ignite imagination and a sense of wonder in all children so they can discover themselves, their passions, and their purpose.
There was a time not so long ago when childhood offered the space and freedom for children to explore their world. To be curious. To be creative. To be bold. To be bored. To just . . . be. Today, our overstimulated and overscheduled children are using their imaginations less than ever. It’s a crisis in the making. And it’s why we’re committed to making products that inspire creative thinking and encourage kids to see new possibilities. It’s also why the American Academy of Pediatrics chose to join forces with us to champion the health benefits of open-ended play.
We make toys and other products that offer Countless Ways To Play. We believe the best playthings are often simple concepts that inspire children to come up with their own twists. With everything we create, we hope to encourage:
