This activity is an excellent way to explain spatial concepts: beside, over, under, on, off, in front, behind, etc. to children.
This activity also works on following directions.
Included: A park 'scene', two pages of pictures, and an instructions page.
Instructions: Laminate all of the pages and cut out the provided squares. Stick small pieces of Blu-Tack to the back of the squares, as this will allow them to be placed on the picture scene without falling off.
Ask the child to place the squares on particular areas of the ‘tree’ scene.
Place the blue bird beside the bench.
Place the yellow owl on the tree branch,
