Silicon Numbers for Younger Children
2014 PPS Silver Award Winner!
SiliShapes are a new concept for pre-schools, nurseries and primary schools. This pack of green dotty numbers (1 - 10) is a fun numbers activity for nursery, preschool and KS1 children in primary school.
Each number is transparant and feature small dots. These have been deliberately included to encourage counting during play. The numbers are made from silicon - a very safe yet strong material which is suitable for children within these age groups. It is soft and pilable to the touch. They can be used on light trays, in sand pits, on the floor and in water. Just wash them with soapy water to make them clean again.
Please note - the light panel is not included, it is for illustrative purposes only
The numbers are each 120 cm in height. This large format and school friendly font makes it easy for children to quickly develop number recognition and fine motor skills.

What the 2014 PPS Silver Award testers said:
“The children were immediately attracted to these as the colours were bright and eye-catching. They loved the feel of them and said there were like pancakes! They are excellent for number and letter recognition and counting or spelling. The dots also encourage counting and matching. The children enjoyed tracing the shape of the number and letters which encourages correct formation. A fantastic accessory for the light panel too. A very reasonable price!”
