It was great for her fine motor development too as she had to work really hard to pick off and place back each little piece, and she concentrated really hard to achieve it each time! It’s so sweet to watch them all playing together, with the little one not quite so little any more, sob!
What they are learning while they play:
creativity: combining materials, exploring shapes, colours and patterns, working on a large scale
maths: copying and inventing their own patterns, recognising and naming shapes, matching shapes
physical: working on a vertical plane, strengthening shoulder and arm muscles and control, using small tools and materials, pincer grasp for fine motor development
Bean: 12 mos

This is agreat fun idea, I love it. I think I recall you did a similar thing inspired by mattisse?
I am looking forward to doing this sort of activity with my little one who is a similar age to your but at the moment he loves the texture of the foam too much and it ends up being chewed and broken into bits!
I’m disappointed in myself, because I want to ask if they came off the window ok? 😉
I love the window idea, I want to try with some contact paper soon.

Cute! I love how versatile foam is. I will have to try this idea out.
