To date, developmental needs and abilities of children under
4 years old have been insufficiently taken into account at the
early stages of technology design. Bekker and Antle [6] cre-
ated developmentally situated design (DSD) cards as a design
tool to inform children’s technology designers about children’s
development starting from 5 years of age. In this paper, we
describe how we customized DSD cards for a specific develop-
mental skill (i.e., spatial learning) of children between 2- and
4-year-olds for tangible interaction design. The cards were
evaluated after a user study in which 19 participants from dif-
ferent backgrounds used the cards in three design workshops.
Our analysis of observational notes and online survey identify
and discuss how specific card features support or limit use by
our participants. We draw on our findings to set forth design
considerations and possible refinements that make age specific
knowledge about very young children’s spatial learning to
inform technologies based on tangible interaction.
