1. To create a fun way to identify picture and name the picture.
2. To teach language skills.

Wooden puzzle with different shapes in different colours.

1. Show your child how to fit the correct wooden shape into the correct place on the puzzle, and say the name of the shape.

2. Encourage your child to try.

Wooden Puzzle: 20 DKK (4.90 SGD) from Tiger.

Additional Information:
I was very happy when I found this in Tiger!!! It is very cheap, very educational, very well-made and well thought out! The holes are marked with the shape to clear vision. The wooden pieces also protrude out for from the hole, instead of just lying flat, for better sensory feel. J tried this activity for the first time on 19 march 2011 (2Y14D) and had no problem with all the other shapes, except for the triangle. He took some time to learned it, as the triangle is not of equal length on all three sides.
