This product is part my emergent curriculum resources; so there are many ways they can be used and set up as an invitation to explore, play, learn. Hands on— and all things sensory like (playdough, white board or washable markers/crayons, using loose parts like pompoms, flat marbles, sequins, faux jewels, pebbles, buttons, seeds, etc.) are great to use. I tend to laminate most of my products as they can be re-used and wiped clean. I have placed my laminated activity sheets on metal baking trays and used magnetic buttons and other loose magnetic parts with good success. In essence, there is not one particular instruction for this product, but that it is an open-ended tool of proven of interest to children and their interest is what leads to their greatest learning opportunities.
