This set is extremely versatile, with dozens of uses. Your child will have hours and hours of creative fun! Hammering is a standard activity in the Montessori classroom, which can be combined with our foam letters. Younger children can work on motor skills with the 2 different styles of pins. Paper punching is also a standard Montessori activity. Using our wooden paper punch, your child will have fun punching out shapes. Not only is the paper punch a great preparation for writing, but it is one of the best ways to develop concentration. The purpose of this work is for the child to punch little holes very close to one another and eventually punch out a shape from a piece of paper. This seems simple, but it take a great deal of control to get the punches close enough that the shape will come away from the paper easily and without ripping.
