16 large rubberwood blocks containing beads, transparent acrylic, coloured sand and water/glitter filled pockets in 4 different shapes (square, rectangle, triangle and semicircle).
The Sensory Blocks will promote observation in the wider sense, as all the shapes follow the same convention of colour and shape. So for example, regardless of the contents of the block, the triangles are always green.
The combination of smooth wood exterior and the brightly coloured sensory centre makes a fascinating component with a multitude of educational possibilities for use with children of all ages.
The blocks are the same size as the Large Mirror Blocks, which form a natural extension to this set.
Supports the following areas of learning:
• Personal Development - sensory
• Physical Development - construction
• Understanding the World - observation
• Understanding the World - colour & sound
• Maths - shape & space
• Communication & Language - descriptive language
