Duplo cards

Older kids often love those lego sets where you follow instructions. Why shouldn't little ones too. Great for following visual instructions (early reading) and identifying position and colours and following pattern (numeracy and reasoning). Also great as play cue cards to assist children with Autism who find open ended activities and free play difficult. Also good for use in structured workstation situation (TEACCH).

Also great to support children to communicate with each other by giving each child a card and a shared box of bricks, on their turn they ask other child to give them a specific brick. Encourages colour and size language, which also lend it to a good PECS activity when teaching attributes.

Make your own cards by photoing creations or printing cards, from alljoinin printables.
Black and white cards for you to colour or for children to create own.
