Identify spatial relationships on a vertical plate, recognize notions of alignment and build columns to create trees.
Add bricks to the base plate to help the tree grow.
Let’s have a free play session!
How to prepare
1 base plate
16 random bricks or more
Apply adhesive putty to the back of the base plate and stick it to a wall.
Attach one brick horizontally to the base plate: in the bottom left corner.
Suggest creation of an entire enchanted forest.
Ask “What makes it an enchanted forest?”.
Start the tree with more than one brick.
In preparation, start several trees.
Do not put the first brick and leave the base plate empty.
Play with peers.
