A great hand eye coordination activity featuring 4 boards engraved on both sides with 8 Indigenous symbols (being man, woman, moon, emu tracks, smoke, kangaroo tracks, possum tracks and human tracks).
The natural and coloured wooden discs included in the set are used to replicate the symbols either by placing along the lines of each shape on the board or recreating the shape beside the board. This activity promotes fine motor and coordination skills as children are picking up and placing the discs on the boards using the pincer grip action, as well as introducing them to Aboriginal culture.
