The Melissa & Doug Wooden Latches Board is a popular sought after item, commonly found in Pre Schools.
The large sturdy wooden board provides endless educational entertainment!
As children are busily operating a variety of mechanisms–such as locks, latches, hooks, and clasps–fine motor skills are put to the test. Then, as each door opens, they are rewarded with a variety of colors, numbers, shapes, animals, and more! Behind each numbered door (numbered 1-6) is a picture with the same number of animals, for example: behind the five door are five frogs, etc.. The board develops fine motor skills and mental faculties, as children learn to recognize shapes, colors, animals, and numbers.
Also great as a memory game: Ask kids to look while the doors are open, then recall what is in each position when the doors are closed.
Don’t let them get too good at it though!
