This toy teaches your child about the basic coding concept: sequence.
A sequence is the order of tasks. A programmer tells a computer which tasks to perform first, which to perform second, and so on so that every step happens in the correct order.
Includes 8 maple arrow blocks, one large toddler sized peg, coding grid, 3 felt apple slices, a felt apple, and an instruction card that explains the coding concept and includes steps on how to use the set.
Place your peg, the apple slices (obstacles), and your apple on the grid. Use your coding blocks to create a path from the peg to the apple avoiding the apple slices. How many different paths can you make? What’s the shortest path that you can make?
The coding grid is made from the same materials as our printing cloth. This means you can use washable makers to write on the cloth to make arrows or draw a path. You could even draw your own obstacles. When you are done just rinse in the sink or put in the washing machine to erase your drawings!
Maple wood is proven to be naturally antibacterial making it a good option for young children. It is also biodegradable and renewable, making it a sustainable alternative to plastic in your home.
