House of Education Play Parachute With Motifs
Young children will adore this large colourful parachute. Hold on to the handles and lift it up and down over squealing children; run underneath it, sit on the edges, use to flip balls and toys up into the air; learn numbers and animal names; work as a team to get balls into the mesh slots; lay down on the floor and categorise toys by the images on each segement - the possibilities are endless with this open-ended toy. The colour scheme corresponds with the themes of land, sea and air, with images of animals and transport modes to match each one. It will be a popular toy at nurseries, playgroups, primary school and other education settings but a favourite at home in the garden too - especially at parties and among siblings. Waldorf educators will love the flexibility of this toy.
This parachute has been made in Germany and measures 3.6m in diameter.
Suitable from 18 months.
Montessori education is a child-centred learning approach that promotes independent thinking and creativity, and gives children the freedom to make their own spontaneous choices. It has been developed from the research of the Italian doctor and educator, Maria Montessori, who worked with children with special educational needs in the early 20th century. Beautiful toys – from beads to wooden blocks, peg puzzles, wooden figures and shapes - become educational tools to encourage learning through play. Engagement with the natural world is a key feature of Montessori education too.
