This Rainbow Peg Play Set from Learning Resources is lots of fun for tots to count, sort, stack and string. It includes 30 Rainbow Stacking Pegs, a double-sided peg mat, and two 36" laces. The oversized hexagon-shaped pegs in six colors are easy to grasp. It reinforces counting, sorting, patterning, color and shape recognition, and eye-hand coordination. The reversible 8.75" x 8.75" mat is printed on one side for number and shape practice. Suggested activities included.
Help children get a grip on math skills through play. The Rainbow Peg Play Activity Set, winner of a National Parenting Publications Award, is designed for many color, shape, and number activities. Thirty easy-to-grab pegs can be stacked, strung together on the colored string, or put into the reversible play mat. Children will need guidance for the structured activities included in the activity guide, but this versatile set allows for imagination and exploration through free play as well. --Lynne Sampson
