Colored Stacking Spools
Explore little ones! This set of rainbow spools can be played with in a variety of ways to help support children’s developing cognitive and fine motor skills. Stacking, categorizing and sorting the spools helps lay the foundation for early math concepts, and building encourages them to plan and problem solve. The fun shape of the spool is rewarding for little hands that are eager to grasp, release and manipulate objects, as they develop dexterity and practice hand-eye coordination. There’s no right or wrong way to play this open-ended play set, a staple of Waldorf education and early childhood development.
