For children, mirrors hold an element of magic! They can show a child its own face! Some hand held varieties can be used to bounce sunlight off walls and by combining with prisms children will create their very own rainbows. Floor standing and wall varieties show a child much more than their own reflection.
A mirrors magical properties:
- teach a child about perspective
- children can learn about reflection of themselves and others
- concave and convex versions provide hours of distorted fun
- brighten and liven any nursery or classroom floor or wall
By looking past themselves into the background of a mirror, children see what is behind them. Special concave and convex versions distort a child’s image providing hours of fun as they move towards and then away from the mirror making themselves appear taller, shorter, fatter and thinner!
Mirrors for children come in a variety of styles and sizes. There are wall mounted varieties which are available as framed or unframed. These types are available in a myriad of different shapes and sizes. The floor standing types, allow children to crawl through and around them. And the novelty mirrors are designed specifically to distort the body. These have hilarious results. Children of all ages will experiment with the world around them using these different versions.
This humble piece of classroom and nursery equipment has far more to offer the developing child than you may think.
