Create a reusable activity that explores mathematical concepts.



Time: 10 minutes to make
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
A piece of wood
Nails
Hammer
Hair ties
Rubber bands (we used loom bands)



Method
Help your child hammer in the nails, anywhere they like over the board.




Encourage your child to stretch the hair ties from one nail to another. Explore different shapes.


Experiment with stretching hair ties into letters, symbols or numbers.


Once they feel ready for a more challenging way of playing with the Nail Board, introduce rubber bands. What shapes can they make using these?



When they are finished, take off the hair ties and rubber bands, and save for next time.
