People have been stacking rocks for thousands of years, sometimes as testimonies of God’s work, other times as burial or trail markers. These days rock balancing is mostly used as a calming, relaxing, and sometimes brain-stretching family activity. Now it is made colorful as well with Rainbow Pebbles, which are neither too light nor too heavy, and are smooth with a soothing, slightly grippy feel.
Rainbow Pebbles is both a construction and an early mathematics manipulative as it requires counting, sorting, and creative design. Descriptive language is also strengthened as your child puts into practice vocabulary such as smaller, bigger, less than, heavier, and lighter. Fine motor skills are enhanced as your child handles the irregular but reasonably flat, multi-colored, multi-sized, indestructible plastic pebbles. Using the sturdy cards, your child will be asked to duplicate both the flat animal and shape designs as well as the stacked structures that are pictured. Then encourage him to build a tower that you have to try to replicate, and watch his engineering mind begin to whirl. Rock balancing with Rainbow Pebbles is a skill that takes patience, a light touch, and a kinesthetic understanding of weight and balance. Great fun, with unending educational uses, Rainbow Pebbles includes 36 pebbles in 6 sizes and 6 colors, and 20 double-sided activity cards in a sturdy plastic container.
