Connectagons by Hearth Song
Manipulatives were always one category of materials that were set out for the preschool kidlets. Examples of manipulatives are Duplos, pegboards, puzzles, lacing beads, and other items that help children to problem solve, develop their fine motor skills, design creative structures and many other ways to grow and learn. An added bonus of manipulatives is they give children a tactile and kinesthetic experience; letting them feel with and move their bodies.
Connectagons is another example of a manipulative type of toy! There are limitless ways to put Connectagon pieces together and almost as many benefits PLAYING with them!
A common characteristic of all manipulatives is they develop children’s eye-hand coordination and hand strength with the grasping, pulling, turning, twisting required. Certainly, PLAYING with Connectagons, children will improve their hand strength and eye-hand coordination.
Additionally, PLAYING with Connectagons will contribute towards developing your child’s:
◦ problem-solving skills
◦ visual discrimination skills
◦ spatial awareness
and this list isn’t all-inclusive!
Connectagons is appropriate for children ages 4 years, but many older children will enjoy the freedom of building with them too! Connectagons is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) play. Kiddos can explore essential engineering and scientific principles and develop foundational skills as they PLAY; they experience the POWER of PLAY!
Connectagons definitely gets a huge thumbs-up PLAY ON stamp of approval!
● Open-ended toyàinspires creativity/experimentation; fosters self-regulation/impulse control
● Natural and durable, made from wood
● Variety of sets available
● Modestly priced
● Visually stimulating
● Introduce geometric shapes, colors, patterning
● With all the pieces that are in each set, I’m telling you now you’ll want to come up with some kind of way to contain them or they’ll get stepped on (potentially broken) or lost.
I’d love to see some of the creations your kiddos have designed PLAYING with Connectagons–feel free to send in a few photos!
