This maths Treasure Basket explores the idea of pairs using a range of textures, colours and shapes for little fingers to explore. Each item has been specially selected to provide an opportunity to sort into pairs, by matching colour, material, shape or use, encouraging children to compare qualities of individual items. As this collection encourages an early understanding of mathmatical lanuage and ideas, it makes for a perfect addition to a nursery or children's group as an educational resource.

  • They are 10 pairs of everyday and natural items, each in two colours.
