A popular theme of our Role Play Boxes – or Early Scribbles Set – the award winning Explorer Box has been designed to encourage the use of writing or mark making during outdoor and explorer activities or indoor role play for children in their early years.
It comes with lots of interesting and fun items to make use of opportunities to write messages (for fellow followers or signs to indicate where you have gone), lists (for things to take on your journey) or recording (significant events and special finds) and numbers (charting the number of birds/mini beasts seen). As this collection encourages early writing skills it makes for a perfect addition to a nursery or children's group as an educational resource.
This helps children see that writing is an important and natural part of everyday activities.
There is a supportive guidance card packed with ideas for adults to make the most of opportunities for writing.
Each Box contains: A selection of notebooks, pen/pencils, clip board, magnifiers glass, bug pot, compass binoculars.
Full guidance notes are included. They have suggestions of how to use the contents to encourage writing and number during imaginative activities or role play.
