How to play

Hand out the Miniland nuts and bolts game to get familiar with the pieces involved. Look for differences and similarities among the geometric figures: circles, triangles and squares (free game and/or conversation).


Print out the sheet, choose the drawings of the piece, nut and bolt you wish to work on. Paint them the same colour. Once they have been coloured in, look for the nut and bolt in the real Miniland game and screw them together.
