Game idea: 3D Figure builder

Age: From 5 years

Players: From 2 children

What do you need?
The Tetralino

How is it played?
Each child gets a Tetralino set with 40 wooden parts. The children think beforehand which figure they would like to build together - a figure that not only lies flat on the ground, but also goes up - this is called 3D, which means in three dimensions (up, forwards and to the side ). Will it be an animal? Which one? Or a vehicle? Which one? After the target figure is defined, one child at a time takes turns placing a stone in a shared figure, which is built together. When the artwork is completed, the children can think of a new figure.
