Do you remember yourself when you were able to write all the letters of the alphabet for the first time? How did it feel to know all the letters? How does it feel to count all numbers to 10?
Exciting and hard at the same time! These were the first small steps that brought us closer to learning and education.
The PIKU team has created a wooden letter and number puzzle. This puzzle is a great self-learning game and will be an exciting tool for all curious children to make close friends with the world of letters and numbers in an engaging way.
How children can use PIKU dough:
• Insert all letters and numbers in the blanks. It is a good fine motor training for the fingers and will entertain for a long time;
• try to put all the letters in alphabetical order; and row numbers – from largest to smallest;
• write all letters in alphabetical order to strengthen the knowledge of the alphabet;
• Place a white sheet under the stencil plate and draw lines and color the blanks.
• Play a word typing game. Using a piece of paper, the parents write the word and place it in front of the child, who must form the same word from the letters of the puzzle. Dear parents, we invite you to come up with words that do not include repeated letters. This makes this task a little more difficult and interesting for parents as well.
When creating the puzzle, we thought about keeping the letters and numbers in order so that they would not fall out and would always be in place. That’s why we designed the base plate, which also helps keep all the letters and numbers.
We recommend children from the age of 3 to work with our dough.
