SKILLS DEVELOPED IN THE ICE CREAM SHOP SET
The Ice Cream Shop set introduces children to contrasting textures. This set is the perfect introduction to textures for little ones who struggle with tactile defensiveness as none of the elements included would leave a residue on their hands.
Contrasting colours of the pom poms, sprinkles, bowls, and various utensils stimulate the visual sense.
During play, an array of mathematical skills are stimulated including sorting, volume, matching and multiplication.
This skill is improved by collecting pom poms and sprinkles, using the scoops, opening and closing the sprinkles jar, shaking the sprinkles out, reﬁlling the sprinkles jar, using the funnel, and arranging the various bowls.
The enticing nature of the set draws children into a world of ﬂavour combinations, serving friends and family.
While children collect ice cream orders from members of their family or friends during play, they are required to remember the orders; thus, stimulating their memory.
The Ice Cream theme sets the stage for a conversation about how a store operates, hygiene practices, healthy food choices, and how ice cream is made.
During play, the set creates the opportunity to expand children’s vocabulary by introducing various prepositions. Children are also introduced to the names of ﬂavours and utensils.
This skill is stimulated by encouraging the child to use both hands simultaneously to play in the tray.
Reaching across the tray to collect ingredients for ice creams encourages midline crossing influences their ability to read and write at a later stage.
