Knobless Cylinders

These were one of the things I bought recently from IFIT and babyEbi is really enjoying working with them.
I have made a set of pattern sheets to go with them, there are 20 patterns in all starting from one colour easy ones...

and then two colours.....

followed by three colours, this one is quite tricky and even more so if you have hiccups at the time!

Then I made some which need cylinders placing on top of other cylinders, babyEbi hadn't really got the hang of this one yet.

Once the child can create the patterns of top of the paper they can re-create the patterns next to the paper, this is quite hard, especially for a little boy who isn't yet three.

I printed and laminated my sheets back to back with an extra piece of A4 between them and they have come out lovely. Here are all the designs....

If you would like a set of these patterns then pop over to my lulu store the colour tablets file is also there.

I am also interested in hearing about any other extensions that can be done with the knobless cylinders.

Well the sun is out so we are off to the dinosaur park for a play date.....

  2. Very nice! This post makes me want to buy the knobless cylinders :) I'm still working on my color tablets. After I finish blogging, I'm going to laminate them, so that we can start working with them tomorrow. I'll post about them once I finish them. Thanks so much for such great tablets!
