In this game box there are many suggestions for extended play and learning with the beanbagbanana.
1. Object Matching. After the games usefulness has waned, use the banana as a matching game. Have your child walk around the house, outside or to the store taking the banana with him/her. Have your child find things around him/her that are similar in either color, shape or size, you choose.
2. Conceptual Thinking. Once your child has played the above game with the banana numerous Emes, have your child choose another familiar object to use with the same instructions. It can be a small toy, an apple or a small stuffy. Whatever you think might work well.
3. Problem Solving. Challenge your child to use the banana outside the game in different ways. Can he/she make it roll, slide, stand it on end without it falling, etc.?
