An object permanence box is a tool for children to learn that objects still exist when no longer visible.
Studies show that children have a natural love for learning, and equipping them with the right tools is key to their development. Object permanence is a crucial aspect of this growth, and this box can help with that.
Have you ever noticed how babies and toddlers simply move onto the next toy when a previous one is hidden? That's because they haven't yet grasped the concept that the toy still exists even when it's out of sight.
This toy is great for developing motor skills, both fine and gross:
- Fine motor skills include picking up the ball and placing it into the hole of the box.
- Gross motor skills include large movements, like picking up the box itself or walking/crawling over to the box.
- Their hand-eye coordination is also being developed because of their practice in finding the hole in the box and placing the ball directly inside
