product information

Learn to count and match colours with Snails and Spots, counting up the holes of the snail and rolling out balls of dough to cover them up.

How to play:
Squish, squash and roll
Lets squish and roll the dough in our fingers and make little dough balls. We can put the balls onto the snail shells and count them up.

Count and match
Let's match the coloured balls with the numbers on the snail shells. We can count the balls together, and cheer when all the shell slots are filled.

Matching colours
Lay the cards out and ask your child to group the cards by colour.

My daughter is 2 and a half and loves using the play dough to count the spots, she has become confident counting up to 10 with this game. I have taken it to the school I work in during numeracy sessions I support we have used it and found it to be very useful and great fun.
