During this period of development, your child will begin exploring a lot more with their hands. They might learn to twist, turn, pull and more to explore an object. They will likely still be able to understand more than they can say, and may even become interested in real-life objects for play. That's why this kit is all about exploring early numeracy concepts, STEAM, practicing manual dexterity, and pretend play.
What’s inside the Build. Play. Learn. Kit?
Wooden Lock Box
This multipurpose Lockbox is inspired by the classic Montessori toy. It has real locks (that are of course safe for children) for your child to practice their manual dexterity skills. It also comes with two 'key' puzzles on top that require some problem solving to take out. Last of all, it also includes play money for pretend play.
This wooden Kitchen Set is the perfect introduction to pretend play. They can use the food plushies and food mat to engage in meaningful play, while learning about the names of different foods. When they're all done playing, this set stores easily unlike many huge pretend kitchens.
Healthy Food Mat
It's never too early to talk about the importance of health. This food mat has a pie chart instead of the classic food pyramid. According to Harvard researchers, this way of visualising what to eat is easier for children to learn and makes more sense in terms of overall health. Your child can use it for pretend play and for learning how to sort the food into categories.
More or Less? Pre-numeracy book
This simple book is designed to introduce the important concepts of 'more' and 'less'. Children at this age may not be ready to count, but they can certainly begin to learn pre-numeracy concepts. Doing so prepares them for when they actually learn to count.
Big Car, Small Car Opposites Book
Sticking to the theme of STEAM, this book is all about opposites like tall and short, or wide and thin. 'Opposites' is not necessarily an easy concept to understand. It requires your child to be able to use abstract thinking, which we will touch on in this kit.Explore this kit for your 18-20 month old
