Geometric Solids

I introduced the geometric solids to O today. I expected her to like them more than she did. I am following Gettman's instructions as to how to how to introduce them, so today we just felt them and experienced them. She was mainly interested in building a castle :)


  1. Where did you get them? Does the paint chip off easily? I've been thinking of getting a set.

  2. I can't remember where I got them, but it's gone out of business. This was the 1st time we used them, and the paint was already chipped in at least 3 places!!! I was not happy about that, but I think I have some paint that I can use to touch them up.

  3. O is learning how shapes go into things to build them into objects.

    That's key to development at her age.

    I got my shapes without paint at a school supply website
