These boxes are designed to enrich a child’s development and help to create positive growth. Included in the box are instructions to use the box for heuristic play as well as some specific activities that are based on ‘Te Whariki’ New Zealands early childhood curriculum. The activities are designed for infants (0-18 months) and toddlers (1-3 years). However with a clever adult the box can be used with young children (2.5 years to school age) as well.
We know that in today’s society there are a lot of busy & tired parents, grandparents, carers & educators who would love to compile something like this for their kids but just don’t have the time.
There are over 18 different types of objects and over 45 objects all up. The objects are a mixture of natural and man-made items. It includes objects with different textures, weights, sizes, malleability, sounds, and colours to provide diverse opportunities for a child.
As much as possible we support local and NZ made. The Boxes are hand crafted and made locally by Sada Design and hand stamped with stamps made locally by Stamps Plus.
In the future we will make a variety of other themed and priced boxes
