The Mirror Tray provides an excellent open-ended arena for the exploration of light, reflection and symmetry and can be placed upon a table top where the children can easily see things reflected. Made from scratch proof acrylic the surface will stand the test of time. Children will want to experiment with shapes and to explore the effects. Shaped blocks with patterns on them (such as the Masterkidz 24-piece colour block set) are the ideal accompaniment to this set providing pieces that are arched to form a circle or patterned to create a stunning reflective effect. Using the 4-piece mirror blocks adds to the reflective potential of this wonderful resource. A vertical mirror can be placed into the tray to create compartments for several children working on either side of the tray at once to create three dimensional reflections.
