“A good resource that can be used in a variety of ways by children, incorporating a number of areas of learning. our children enjoyed using these as a new lacing activity and stacked them together. They also used the light table to explore colour changes when colours are mixed. We liked the range of colours and shapes.” – PPS Awards Testers
