How to teach a child to collect a pyramid
The pyramids were collected by children more than one generation earlier and continue to do so now. This invention is a real educational toy for young children. Today in the stores of children’s products you can find different models of pyramids, which necessarily like crumbs. We will understand when it is better to buy this developing toy and how to teach the baby to collect it.
Each kid develops individually, so one can begin to collect the pyramid in a year and a half, the other – in two. But the pediatricians recommend buying the first toy when the baby turns 6-8 months old. As soon as the baby starts to sit alone, you can introduce him to this toy. The crumb must attract the bright colors of the rings and a new object. But do not think that the crumb immediately begins to collect the pyramid, it can not. Parents can show the baby how to do it, gradually he will remember.
The pediatrician can be interested in the parents, whether their kid collects the pyramid, closer to the year. But do not worry if the crumb can not master this toy. Everyone has their own pace of development, but according to the norms, by the age of two the kid has to master this skill – not just string the rings on a rod, but collect them correctly: first large ones, then small ones.
Do not force a half-year-old crumb to collect the rings without the rod. He only learns to manage his body, develops coordination. At this age, it is more interesting for children to scatter the details of the pyramid so that their parents can collect them. Closer to the year, you can explain the principle of this game to the kid and try to collect the rings together. As soon as the kid learns the toy with the help of adults, he will quickly learn how to collect it himself.
The main rule is to teach in a game form, because all children like to play. Dr. Komarovsky believes the pyramid is one of the first developing toys for a baby, with which parents must necessarily introduce crumbs. But if the child is not in the mood, fusses, cries and throws the rings further away from himself, you should temporarily remove the toy from the infant's field of vision. Do not force the child to collect the pyramid.
Some children simply understand the principle of playing with the pyramid, while for others it takes months. Parents should not be upset, but you need to continue to deal with the child and explain how to properly collect this educational toy.
During the game, be sure to praise the child. Even if he does not succeed, the baby should be encouraged and directed his actions in the right direction.
Does not know how or not interesting: whether to start worrying
Each child is different, so it's hard to say exactly at what age your crumb is interested in the pyramid. Child psychologists explain that the average age is from one year to one and a half years. But if the little man did not begin to collect the pyramid at this age, is this really a lag in development? Of course not, if the child develops according to the norms and shows interest in other toys. His disinterest may be caused by the following reasons:
If the baby is interested in developing activities, physically develops, is completely healthy, but is not interested in only the pyramid - this is not a cause for concern. But if the parents notice that the child does not play ball, does not turn over the book and does not show interest in other subjects, it is worth consulting with the doctor.
Every year for children a huge number of developing toys, centers and rugs are produced, but a simple pyramid that was popular many decades ago does not give up its positions in the modern world. It plays an important role in the development of the baby. Parents should show the principle of folding the pyramid and encourage attempts to play with it. The child is always interested in bright figures and in the form of play will learn to put them in place.
