A few days ago I posted this picture of a simple geoboard I put together for Jack (4.5yrs) and Sarah (2.5yrs) on Facebook. Jack and Sarah are loving their little geoboards so much that I thought I would pop a little post here too.
This is just one of those daggy old cork pot holders, some pushpins and some rubber bands. We have a translucent geoboard which Jack and Sarah like using on the light panel, but I think with this cork one, they really like being able to create their own designs with the pins first.
So easy, much easier than making one with nails. You could also use an old pinboard (ha! fancy that) that you’ve probably got around the place somewhere.
Jack’s been enjoying making all kinds of wonderful designs, while Sarah has been working really hard on stretching the rubber bands over the pins.
A lovely Facebook reader sent me a message and some photos of the elaborate designs her 8,6 and 3 year olds made on their geoboards. If you make one, snap a picture and post it on Facebook, I’d love to see it.
Lots of fun for everyone.
*the pins are of course sharp. I am happy for Sarah to use them, under supervision. Please use your own discretion.
