What are rebuses – my children learned very early. The fact is that my father is very passionate about crosswords, puzzles, charades and other puzzles. My girls went to kindergarten late. Grandpa coped well with the role of the nurse and the teacher. He taught the little ones to count, write, read. Moreover, he did it with great pleasure.
My dad does not recognize developing exercise books and manuals. He believes that you need to teach your children by your own efforts. Without assistants, so to speak. And he is great at it! Not surprisingly, in two and a half years, the girls knew not only the primary colors, but also shades. And in 5 years they knew exactly what kind of change the seller must give, within double-digit bills.
The first puzzles of the girls also began to solve early. As you guessed, these were rebuses invented by a beloved grandfather. He thought of some tasty word, and the person who guessed received the prize. So, having guessed the word candy, the girls got a tasty candy. With such prizes, rebuses soon became their favorite entertainment!
The rebuses helped us out very well in the queue to the doctor, on a long journey or at home, during illness, when bed rest is necessary. And to come up with puzzles yourself is not at all difficult! My daughters do it at 7 years of age.
