Before young children can acquire a fluent and comfortable handwriting style they need to develop fine motor control and an understanding of the basic letter shapes. These beautiful engraved stones offer a tactile and visual way of introducing letter formation. Starting at the green dot children will enjoy tracing each letter shape with their finger – over and over again – building important motor-memory skills. The stones are tough enough to be used in sand, water and outdoors opening up exciting opportunities for learning throughout a setting. Each set contains 26 letter stones (4-5") and an activity leaflet. Age 3+.
