Get an inspiration on how to use the pictures from the EDA PLAY apps

to explore world around. 


We develop the EDA PLAY apps with vision stimulation and early care experts to develop these games to measure to the children with vision and multiple impairments. We are happy to share our experience with supporting the development of these children and with the use of new technologies on this website. 

We can help the children to better explore the world and support the visual training and fine motor skills development with the help of the pictures from the EDA PLAY apps and an active commentary of an adult. Download the free worksheets in a PDF format (choose an A4 or A3 size); print them out and exercise with your children in developing the visual images and motor skills even without the tablet.   



HELP YOUR CHILD DEVELOP THROUGH THE GAME  Download the sheet with the task on A4 or A3 format, print it out and practise the visual and fine motor skills with your child. Remember being an active guide, describe what you see on the picture; your commentary will help the child understand the visual perception.

Colouring sheets


If you are going to download colouring sheets with black background, make sure your printer can print large surfaces well. Black background is used deliberately; it provides high contrast - this helps the child focus on a particular motif.  

Colouring sheets are suitable for children who already can work with pencil, colouring pencils (or gel pencils) or felt tips (the child can also use ergonomic gel felt tipped pens – thick or triangular), as well as for the children who you are only planning to try these activities with. Smaller children can also paint with finger paints. You can choose an A4 or A3 size print, depending on how big a surface you want to provide your child with for working. 

 

Tip for you:  

Talk to your child about what he/she sees on the picture; describe the picture with your own words. Talk about how the cat meows, where you could see a horse or about driving to school in a car every day – or where you’re going to go for a ride in your car next.

There is a white background around the car. You can draw the passengers inside the car, draw a garage, or the sun above the car and explain to the child what “above” means. Look out of the window and show your child where the sky with the sun is, where the road on which the car is driving is. What is above and what is below?
