SEN Resources Blog

October 2017

 This reviewer thought “The Carddies Packs are fabulous for promoting imaginative play– which is important for helping children make sense of our world...Colouring the characters and back-drop as well as moving the people around all involves the development of fine motor skills which are imperative skills for learning to write, do up buttons, use a knife and fork etc. “

"I knew these would be a hit, both Summer and Jacob enjoyed colouring the bits together, creating their own sports team and standing their players up etc."
