Montessori Sorting Bowls and Balls
DescriptionA modern twist on a Montessori classic. This Sorting Bowl Set from Elm + Otter features beautiful modernized colors. This set in meant to reinforce knowledge of colors, matching and fine motor skills. This set is a great sorting activity for younger children who are too small to handle smaller pieces and can also serve as an open-ended toy for pretend play.
Materials & Safety
Set includes 7 wood bowls with 7 coordinating balls. Bowls measure 2.5” wide by 1 1/8” tall. Balls are 2 12 in. in diameter.
Hand painted with water based, non toxic paint and finished with natural beeswax, there may be very slight imperfections and difference from set to set.
Ages 18 months +
While this toy is appropriate for younger children, we always strongly advise supervised play. This toy is finished with all non-toxic materials, however, we still suggest children not mouth them as too much mouthing can eventually break down natural finishes. To ensure longevity we recommend periodically reconditioning your wooden toys with a natural finish like beeswax (this is our advice for all wooden toys!).
Play is okay! tip
Use the bowls to hold bits of art supplies and open-ended materials for an afternoon of arts and crafts.
