Have a look at our Montessori Sports materials!
Young children are intensely drawn to ball-shaped objects. The child can easily manipulate a ball, which helps to stimulate their development of movement, their will and increase their independence.
This ball (pictured left) has a diameter of 14 cm and is suitable for 3 – 6 age levels. The surface is slightly rough, for the purpose of providing traction and control to the child who will use it to throw, catch and kick.
Before the 3 – 6 child can play with the ball, it needs to be inflated,
as it will need to be deflated after playing with it. This is a preliminary exercise which fulfills several aspects of practical life and sensorial development. It further stimulates/ cultivates a sense of responsibility for the material.
