Children’s felt wall story board “Seasons” has always occupied a separate place among Carpetino® educational toys. This is the simplest and most interesting educational mat for the development of not only children’s motor skills, but primarily for the development of speech and storytelling. Children with pleasure and ease collect their compositions and tell their stories. After all, here are collected the maximum of those elements that are characteristic of each season and which the child sees around him every day. There are four games in the set, which are connected by one plot. The key element is wood. The composition can be changed by rearranging the elements in places.
Spring is coming, the first green leaves appear on the trees. Thunder rumbles, thunderstorms, lightning flashes and the first spring rain falls. Everything around begins to bloom – flowers appear on the tree. Birds arrive from warm countries and begin to build nests, lay eggs, from which chicks are about to appear. And the baby can make a real birdhouse. Insects wake up – a caterpillar, a ladybug, a beetle, butterflies, a dragonfly. Spring flowers are blooming and strawberries are ripening.
Then summer comes. As in real life, new elements appear in the set. On the tree – delicious fruits, apples, pears. The bees work hard and stock up on honey. The spider spins its web. Sunflowers are ripening, daisies are in the forest… Fish are splashing in the ponds, and there is even a funny duckling. And of course, there is a delicious delicacy – raspberries. And in the sky you can see a rainbow – perhaps the most favorite element of children both in life and in the game. The rainbow consists of 24 elements and to collect it the child will need perseverance.
Then autumn comes. This is the most beautiful and richest time for the harvest. This is the time of the brightest colors. Red, yellow, orange… the leaves on the tree are changing color and are about to fall off. As in every season, new elements now appear on the tree – nuts and acorns. The set contains a variety of vegetables and fruits: pepper, onion, eggplant, pumpkin, apple, pear, carrot, grapes. And, of course, a basket to collect a real harvest. There is also a hero familiar and beloved by all children – a hedgehog who picks mushrooms and apples. It rains more often, the birds go to warmer climes – a little more and winter will come.
Finally, winter comes. At this time of the year, elements that are characteristic of winter are collected. Of course, it snows in winter – there are snowflakes in the set and our tree is covered with snow. Here, winter berries are already used as fruits – mountain ash and holly. And of course, there are birds characteristic of winter – the titmouse and the bullfinch. An additional element appears in the set – a Christmas tree. After all, winter is New Year and Christmas. In addition to the tree, the child can decorate the Christmas tree with toys, make a snowman and wait for the main character of the winter holidays – Santa (Father Frost). A little more and spring will replace winter again – the snow will begin to melt and icicles will appear …
