And one of You, my lucky readers get to win a $40 gift card to their shop, so that You can buy an educational kids stuff of your choice for your little one. Keep reading to find out how.
This Hammering Shapes is fun hands on activity that helps kids to learn to hammer using real nails and a small wooden hammer. It comes with 100 geometric tiles(with a pre-drilled hole), 1/2" nails and a corkboard. We received this on the day my brother's family arrived and both Putti and her cousin really enjoyed playing this. It became both the girls favorite soon. They would first arrange the tiles in a design they like, place a nail in the pre-drilled hole in a tile, and then hammer it to the corkboard.
It comes with suggestions for designs, but because of the open-ended nature of this activity, Putti was able to create her own pictures like the house, sun and beanstalk seen below.The tiles can be removed from the corkboard, then hammered again and again to create an infinite variety of patterns. This is a good table activity that allows children to refine their small motor skills as they work. I love the big colorful bird that the girls made.
The recommended age is 4+ years, but I have had an almost three year-old play and love it too. Though the little guy did not make any design, he loved hammering the tiles randomly.
And now, you can buy one of this or any other toy from 'For Small Hands'. They have been generous to give away a $40 gift card to one of Putti Prapancha readers!
