Pair two identical rectangular blocks into a square, two triangles into a square, two semicircles into a circle, and so on. This game can help children understand the relationship between different graphics, and understand concepts such as parts and wholes. And in the process of playing, children need to use their eyes to observe whether the blocks of different shapes can be matched, which is very beneficial to the cultivation of observation ability.
2. For numbers
Prepare a set of blocks marked with numbers. You first code several blocks according to the numbers on the blocks, from small to big, and then ask the child to put the corresponding number blocks on top according to the next number. If you misplace the blocks or knock down the original blocks during the placement process, you will lose. This game can help children understand the relationship between numbers and make their concept of numbers clearer.
3. Tell the story when assembled
Prepare a set of assembly building blocks, which contain furniture, father, mother, baby, etc. Teach children to assemble the building blocks according to their own wishes, and then use words to tell family stories. Moms can make up stories with their children. This game can also give play to children’s imagination.
4. The building blocks are down
Stack the blocks one by one, and when they reach a certain height, let the child push them down with their hands. Children usually laugh happily when they see the bricks falling down. Although this is just a very simple “destroying” game, it is an important activity for children to improve spatial cognition.
5. The winding path
Teach the children to arrange the long blocks at a certain interval so that they can be connected into a winding path. Give the child a toy car so that he can play along this “path”, and ask him not to touch the building blocks. This can exercise children’s ability to visually detect spatial distance, cultivate three-dimensional perception and hand-eye coordination.
6. Playing bowling
First, arrange the cylindrical blocks of different colors into an inverted triangle, and then ask the child to leave a certain distance, roll a ball to the block, and knock the block down. As the child’s ability increases, the distance can be gradually increased. This game requires children to have a sense of direction, and it is also helpful to improve concentration and exercise coordination.
