Stacking tower of different skin tones may be a perfect cause to talk with your child. Although the details are painted in different colors, they all are similar and equal, and made of the same material. People may have different skin colors, eyes or eye cuts, hair, beliefs or sweethearts, but we all have red blood in our veins and our hearts beat at the same rhythm. It is more than just a simple stacking tower – it plants ideas of equality and importance of every person into little minds.
While playing, discuss what equality and diversity mean
Build figures on a flat surface. For example, a caterpillar or a snowman
Imagine that the discs of the tower are stars (the way we see them from the Earth). Some of them are closer and bigger, others are further and smaller. Make constellations (existing or imaginary) with them
Set wheels in motion. Which will roll further? In which surface: upwards, straight or downwards?
