Hide-it Set with Materials
Age: 6 months and upwards Educational value: Small children take great pleasure in hiding things and making them disappear. They never tire of repeating the same actions over and over again. Older children love hiding the ring, the chain or the scarf in one of the containers for a younger child to take out. Small children are fascinated by the disappearance of an object and are delighted when the object comes back again. Through this simple form of play, small children will begin to understand the basic concepts of, for example, size. Is the object too big to go through the opening? Or will it fit? Children start learning about different materials and discovering object permanence. Do objects still exist even if they are not visible? The cans can be decorated with colourful patterns or motifs of your choice.
