Posting Matchsticks

This is a great activity for children from 9 months and up, and can be used in a variety of ways. We’d love to see your pictures of your children trying these, so please send them to us?

Any polystyrene tray can be used for these activities, including takeaway containers, but please make sure they are well washed before use.

For your interest, the last picture gives you a description of one of the skills that you are helping your child to develop through this play, so that you can see how you are helping with your child’s development as well as bonding with your child.
