This set of six vividly coloured ladybug beetles is exciting for children as they try to piece the two correct halves together based on its appearance. This makes for a great pairing game as children slowly begin to classify objects based on their awareness of colour as a property.
By removing and inserting beetle pieces with their hands, children become adept with the palmar grasp, leading to enhanced dexterity. Since the beetles are identical in all aspects except colour, it ensures children completely narrow down their attention to this property of objects. Pairing and playing memory games based on colour greatly enhances awareness and understanding of colour as a property, also aiding in developing short term memory skills leading to higher cognitive ability.
