Injini Frog Game
Ribbit, ribbit. Feed the froggie by using your finger to draw a line from the hungry frog’s mouth to a variety of insects. Ladybugs and dragonflies become delectable treats for the frog and a playful exercise of fine motor activity for your toddler. The frog’s hungry moving eyes, the colorful insects and silly sounds help to engage and motivate your child to practice prewriting skills by drawing lines from mouth to food. After the frog is full, a summary screen of all the insects devoured will appear so that you and your young one have an opportunity to count and talk about the many different types of insects.
Developmental Benefits: Fine motor movement practiced in the Injini Frog game helps to develop prewriting skills. Studies on three to six-year-olds have followed their developmental sequence from drawing and scribbling to creating legible letters at an older age. The frog game encourages scribbling and stimulates cause and effect understanding through trial and error (Piaget, 1952).
