Help the child to identify each item on the stencils.
Help the child identify the colors of the pencils and stencils.
Sort the stencils into groups using different criteria: For instance, you could ask the child to sort the stencils by color, group stencils with like quantities of shapes, or separate stencils of living things from stencils of non-living things.
Count the stencils, the pencils, and all the pieces together.
Use the stencils to create a memory-match game: Place a piece of paper on the box top and cover the space with tiles. Trace the shapes, then repeat using on a second sheet. Cut up the sheets of paper and turn them over to start playing. (Flip over two pieces at a time to try to find a match.)
Give the child a few tiles to observe. Then have the child close his or her eyes as you mix up the pieces. Challenge the child, eyes closed, to identify the tiles using only touch.
Partially trace a stencil shape on a piece of paper and challenge the child to complete the drawing freehand.
Create a simple words-and-picture book by folding together a stack of paper. Have the child trace each shape on its own page, then help the child to write a simple label beneath each picture.
Encourage the child to trace lots of stencil shapes on the same sheet of paper to make a complete scene. Ask the child to describe the scene aloud to you, asking questions to encourage detailed descriptions and imaginative storylines.
