Children find the idea of a magnetic pen extremely fascinating and engaging as they use it to navigate the balls through the maze. By feeding the hungry dinosaurs with the correct number of balls, they understand how each number is associated to a fixed quantity. In addition, children love identifying different dinosaurs on the board which makes this toy a perfect combination of fun and learning.

Set includes a printed acrylic encased wooden board with steel balls in them and a magnetic pen all packed in a Skola Doodle box. Comes with a detailed instruction manual.

Size of the board : 23.7 cm x 23.7 x 3 cm

Once children have understood the cardinal property of numbers , they are ready to understand ordinal numbers from a positional standpoint and learn to link numbers to other properties like dimensions (See How).
This toy reinforces the number system and counting, as children have to feed the correct number of balls to the dinosaurs. It also helps them understand that the last number in the counting sequence indicates the total number of objects in a set. The precision required to carry the balls in each slot is great practice for improving fine motor and pre-writing skills.

ACTIVITIES

  • Slotting
    • Show the child how to hold the pen as you would hold a pencil with three fingers. Then navigate the maze starting from 1 to 10, showing the child how to drop the metal balls in each number slot.
  • Counting
    • After the child is fairly comfortable with putting the balls in the maze, show how to count while putting the balls in. Count clearly and slowly. One ball at a time - 1, 2, 3 and so on.
