A wooden box made of beech (45x65x7 cm) Recommended age +0 months
This material is used to contain the game. It becomes a framework for action that controls and sets limits to the elements and spaces of the children’s game.
This box helps to create an isolated and enclosed area which improves care and respect towards the action within it. A child’s game needs a container, an area which holds the action and that allows for the children to know their limits and understand space.
What happens in the Box of Games? Inside the box, the elements are placed within certain limits that give security to the children. The box becomes a sensorial game when it’s filled up with sand, flour, salt, rice, etc.
In the background, there are some stamped images which evoke the four classical elements: earth, water, air and fire. These elements are part of our species and make us connect with nature. The allegory to these elements can also be used as a game space or as an invitation to organize and classify.
