As if our Grimm’s wooden rainbows weren’t already popular enough, did you know that they make a fantastic set of tunnels over train tracks? All but the smallest rainbows can comfortably fit over tracks and they make a beautiful, multicoloured set of bridges that your child can set up, reposition and then navigate their trains or cars under AND over.
For tiny hands, the practice of passing the train under using one hand then pulling out with the other and testing the height of the trains against the smaller tunnels is great for their motor skills and perception. For bigger kids, it can add a new dimension to an existing set of tracks that interest might be waning in.
What other ways can you find to use Grimm's Rainbows in your play?
