Grimm's Mini Waldorf Square geometrical puzzle encourages the feeling for colors and forms in play, 3-dimensional thinking and inner flexibility. Many variations of shapes, colors and patterns are possible. This pretty little square puzzle is made up of 12 solid-wood pieces each a different vibrant color. The pieces can be manipulated into patterns and designs both inside and outside of the wooden frame. How many variations can you make? Kids love them, but they're great for a desk or coffee table, too. Not for children under 3 years (CHOKING HAZARD - small parts).
Kids can also exercise their geometric and spatial thinking by experimenting with this puzzle's pieces. An extension idea is to create designs and then draw/color them on a piece of paper. In groups, children might each make their own unique drawings of their pattern as templates for a friend to attempt to solve/recreate. The pieces are colored only with non-toxic water-based dyes. This wooden puzzle is handcrafted in Germany, colored with only certified non-toxic water based stains and finished with natural plant-based oil. No paint or varnish used!
