CSN Stores, which runs a series of websites selling everything from counter stools to kids bedding, has graciously offered to give away one Learning Resources Marvelous Mosaics Set to a lucky A Spirited Mind reader.
If you’re not familiar with mosaic and shape tile toys, the basic idea is that the child learns spatial relationships, colors and patterns by fitting differently shaped blocks together to form larger shapes and patterns. Hannah and Jack have used the Melissa & Doug Pattern Blocks and Boards with great success since they were about 2 years old, and I think the Marvelous Mosaic set would be a slightly more difficult product suitable for children around age 4 and up. These toys are a great way to teach beginning math skills to toddlers and preschoolers without resorting to a real “curriculum” for little children.
