    Product Description
    Age Group: 3 and up

    The Cutting Fruit Set helps teach fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination; encourages imaginative and independent play as well as introducing fractions.

    This wooden play food set features a wooden knife and seven pieces of sliceable fruit that can be cut into a total of seventeen pieces! Held together with self-stick tabs, the food makes a fun and satisfying "CRUNCH" sound when sliced. With so many pieces, it's also a great way to introduce counting and the concepts of part, whole, and fractions!

    Extension Activities
    - Ask the child to identify each piece of fruit. Place the piece the piece of fruit in a row. Count the pieces. Repeat the activity until the child is able to count them independently.
    - Ask the child to use the wooden knife and cut the pear into two pieces. Explain that the pear has been cut into two equally sized pieces or halves. Ask the child to find other fruits that can be cut into halves (the oranges, strawberry, lemon and kiwi).
    - Ask the child to use the wooden knife and cut the banana into three pieces. Explain that the banana has been cut into thirds.
    - Ask the child to use the wooden knife and cut the melon slice into four pieces. Explain that the melon slice has been cut into fourths.
    - Ask the child to mix different pieces of fruit together to create new fruits and name them. For example: a strawberry and kiwi might make a "kiberry".
    - Place four or more pieces of fruit in front of the child. Let him/her study them before asking the child to close his/her eyes while you remove one piece. Ask the child to identify which piece was removed.
