Wooden Tray Puzzle
By Wee Gallery
This beautiful wooden puzzle is a fun and challenging way to explore numbers! As counting skills improve, children will be able to solve the puzzle by matching the numbers to the counting marks on the leaves. The leaf pieces do not have a number printed on the back, the dashes on the front indicate the number. Note: every child learns at their own pace. Some children grasp number concepts around 4-5 years old, but some can start earlier and some later. Remember to have fun and be patient! Ways to explore: count the marks on the leaves, then match with the corresponding number in the tray. Counting the lobes on the leaf is another way to practice. As counting skills increase, the higher numbers will come into reach.
