3D wooden coloring model «Steamboat».
For children from 5 years old … as well as grown-ups of any age.
Color as you like: acrylic, gouache, watercolor, markers – you can use whatever you have. You can color the model by doing yourself, with friends or the whole family. Delicate contour lines on wooden parts show the main contours of the ship’s edging, the captain’s deck-house, the ship’s chimney, the screw-propeller, a water-line to make it easy to paint.
Cognitive and developing: the era of the steamboat began in the middle of the 19th century, when the sailing vessels were actively rebuilt on steam. A steamboat has the features, although a little fairy, but the typical ship of those steamboat days, with low wide pipe. Swaying on the waves, moving forward, slicing through the stormy sea with a high nose. Assembles easily and is fun to play with.
Develops engineering skills, spatial thinking and fine motor skills. Captures the imagination of children for a long time.
Eco-friendly: is made of high quality wood, has a fragrant scent of wood and is pleasant to the touch.
Assembles easily: all component parts are already cut off and can be easily removed from the board. The model assembles like a puzzle without glue and special tools by following an illustrated color manual. While children are collecting some blocks, the adults can suggest their help: the joining parts are cut off precisely for the slots and for the assembly, you only need to insert the component pins, pressing them with your fingers. But if the fingers are too small, it may need some help
