Great for hand and eye coordination, the pens will encourage the tripod grip and help your child practise crossing the midline, will speed up mental motor planning and encourage thinking ahead. A fun way to spend time with a pencil in their hand developing their muscle tone for handwriting. Having two pens means you can enjoy the interaction together making it really fun
The board contains coloured balls which are moved across the maze under the clear plastic cover using pencils which have a magnet in their tip. The magnet-tipped pencils are used to guide the balls through the maze from the start to the finish. You don’t lose the balls either which is great and avoids frustration.
We would recommend teaming the pens with pencil grips to encourage the tripod grip for handwriting and have made this available as an optional extra.
Beautiful quality item.
