The Object Permanence Box helps with achieving important developmental milestones of your little one. Object permanence is one of the earliest lessons your child learns. The box helps children learn that just because objects are out of sight, it doesn’t mean they are gone forever. It helps them develop a mental image of the ball and that objects can still exist out of sight.
It develops memory, focus and concentration, fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, grasping and exploration skills.
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.
