Set of 8 sensory Perception Semispheres measuring 2" diameter come in eight different clear colors and feel smooth and warm to the touch. The very youngest children will enjoy handling them in free sensory play or as part of a treasure basket collection. Older children will find them fascinating as they hold them up and look through to see the world around them in different colors. When a hemisphere is placed on top of an object, it magnifies it by 4 or 5 times to give a view that is both a different color and enlarged. Holding two or three Perception Semispheres together creates new colors and hues; using the Spheres on a light panel will enhance the children's opportunities for color mixing.
