Alan and the bolsters

Four large foam bolsters are perfect for inspiring Alan. With these simple, open-ended materials, Alan demonstrates how toddlers use hands-on experiences to construct their own learning and understanding. In this case, Alan explores the concepts of shape and colour, as well as some of the laws of physics.

Alan (2 years, 2 months)

Please note: The children's ages have been adjusted to reflect the three-month gap between the first filming session in March and this one in June.
