Sticky Mosaics - a charity shop bargain

Jessica and I stumbled across this little gem in a charity shop in Colchester a couple of weeks ago. The kit is a set of four pictures to complete with gems and foam squares made by The Orb Factory. There are all sorts of designs available and are sold as Sticky Mosaics - mosaics by number. The quality of the product is fantastic and the designs are beautiful but they do come in more expensive than similar kits by Galt and even Crayola. That is, unless you spot them in a charity shop for £1! 

Jess is loving them. They are great for number recognition, following a key, manual dexterity and sheer patience and persistence. I highly recommend them, especially if you can find them on offer. They're currently half price in Debenhams...

Fingerprint Dandelion Clock

Sometimes the simplest things are the most beautiful. As usual, Jess didn't arrange the colours as I would have liked but I try not to control her creativity so this is her finished canvas which now hangs proudly on the wall.

Quiet Book Part 3

... and the final set.

9. Tangram.

10. Noughts and Crosses.

11. Letters. There are 3 sets of lower case alphabets in the pouch for Jess to use to start forming words on the velcro strips.

12. Telling the time. The arms move and the numbers come off. Just don't ask why the grandfather clock has two pendulums! Oops!
