Pairing of colors and shapes

Now it’s time to have fun 🙂 Mix the stripes together with the kid and give him or her a free hand in play. Let the kid explore and play. Smaller children (2-3 years old) may need small help, so you should show what to do. The older ones will certainly manage themselves.
