1. S loves to sit and play on it since it gives him a different sensory experience while on it.
2. While he plays, we talk about colors. I will take a red object and place it on one of the red circles. Over time, he will be able to take over this color matching and sorting.
3. It can also double as a splat mat for art, sand/water tables, and under highchairs.
4. Finally, it will be a fun activity to practice right/left hand/foot when he's older.
