This Mini Circle of Goethe creative puzzle is made up of 24 wooden pieces in 8 vibrant rainbow colors that rest in a circular wooden frame. The spiral design represents the Color Wheel, and is based on Goethe's Theory of Colors, an important concept taught in Waldorf schools. The pieces can be used to create designs and patterns either in or out of the frame.
Grimm's geometrical puzzles encourage the feeling for colors and forms in play, three-dimensional thinking and inspires the imagination. Endless creative variations of shapes & colors are possible, either in or out of the frame (examples are illustrated in the photos). This and other Mini Creative Puzzles from Grimm's are intended as table games for older children and adults. To extend the possibilities of creative designs, we recommend the layout board (Large 17-inch Board with Felt, item 43790 from Grimm's). Here, the small works of art can be preserved when the table space is needed for other activities.
