What our experts think
A fun threading activity that is great for encouraging children to develop their dexterity, colour recognition and matching skills. Lots of children find threading challenging and it is a great way to strengthen the muscles in their fingers and hands – ideal for honing those all-important pen control skills.
Identifying and matching the colours and animals to make the puzzles was a good way to get children using and learning different vocabulary. Our testers also particularly liked that one of the games allows you to give the other player tiles that are for them as this encourages sharing and working together.
