I was trying to teach my toddler Logic and Cognitive Skills with a Geoboard, and right away, all my other children gathered, expressing interest in the games. I love when this happens, so I allowed all of them to take turns and play with a geoboard and they all enjoyed it greatly! The toddler also did not feel left out and loved playing with the geoboard.
Learn Logic and Cognitive Skills with a Geoboard
Ask the child to make a labyrinth for a marble or a small peg doll, using rubber bands. Chances are, the child will want to change the labyrinth over and over, coming up with different ways to solve the problem. This game teaches the child logical and analytical thinking.
Copy the Art
For small children, copying an actual drawing onto the geoboard can be hard. Pictures made out of shapes are easier to copy. Place the picture in front of the child’s geoboard. Ask the child about the shapes he sees. Watch as the child copies the shapes onto the geoboard. This game helps cognitive abilities and spatial orientation.
