We are crafting all natural, solid hardwood boxes featuring each of the seven continents, a favored learning tool in the Montessori schooling approach. Each box has plenty of space for filling with toy animals, maps, note cards, recipes, fabric scraps, dried bits of nature, photographs, flags, and more! It's a wonderful sensory experience for the child to explore details of each location.
These boxes have handles on either end for carrying. There is a picture of the continent on both the end and lid of the box. The lid nests into the box and when you flip over the lid, you'll find a world map with the continent highlighted to show the child its place in reference to the other continents.
The photos in this listing show the different ends of each box. You won't receive all the pieces in the photo, only the box you choose from the dropdown menu.
Made to order and ships in two to three weeks. Outside dimensions measure 6x12x6.75 inches. Inside dimensions measure 5x11x5.75 inches. Weighs just under 4 pounds.
UPDATES! We will have Tasmania on the Australia box and will have Antarctica spelled correctly.
