Infants learn about the world through their senses. The object permanence box is a Montessori material to develop the child’s sense of object permanence. Just like the concept behind the peek-a-boo game, the child learns that the object/person exists even if they cannot see it/them. It develops memory, focus and concentration, fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, grasping and exploration skills.
Place the box in front of the child and drop the ball into the hole. The ball rolls to a stop in the tray, appearing directly in front of the child. This activity can be repeated and the child too can be encouraged to drop the ball in the hole.
- During its lifetime, a tree is subjected to many natural forces that cause variations in wood grain, color, knots, splits, and stains. These variations are not defects. They enhance the beauty of the wood and add to the characteristic of the handcrafted toys making each toy unique.
- As with any baby toy or accessory, please use only under adult supervision.
- Always inspect for damage prior to use.
