ORDER BY NOV. 5TH FOR CHRISTMAS. Orders placed after that date cannot be promised for Christmas. Everything is made to order, so you can pick out anything you'd like and we will create it for you! We are experiencing a higher volume of orders so wait time is approximately 6 weeks currently from when you order to when it ships.
A set of 7 continent boxes. These solid hardwood boxes feature 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 both ends for carrying. There is a picture of the continent on the front and lid of the box. 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 ends of each box, but you'll receive the complete box for each of the seven continents.
Photos will be updated soon, but just wanted to point out Antarctica has been changed to the correct spelling and Australia now includes Tasmania.
