The Sound Boxes

This activity helps children become more aware of the intensity of sound.  Often children “tune out” because the world is so noisy.  This reduces their capacity to learn.

Description

The Sound Boxes are a traditional Montessori activity.  Each cylinder makes a sound when shaken.  The sound is intense, graded from soft to loud.

Sealed wooden cylinders produce varying degrees of sound from soft to loud when shaken.

Features

  • two sets of color-coded wooden cylinders
  • 6 sealed cylinders in each set
  • a Birch wood ply box keeps each set safe

One of the attractions to the Montessori Method is the extensive use of wood.

We use several types of wood, sourced from renewable sources, in the production of our Montessori Materials.

  • Solid beechwood for cylinder blocks, pink towers, dressing frames and brown stairs.
  • Birchply for trays, holders and animal and botany puzzles.
  • MDF for puzzle maps
  • Pineply for boxes and containers

 

We ensure that the coatings and inks used are not only eco-friendly, but also non-toxic.

Our wooden products are manufactured by responsible partner factories both locally and abroad and ensure that fair labour practices are adopted.

Care instructions for Childrens House Wooden Materials:

  • If wooden products are exposed to liquids, wipe dry as quickly as possible.
  • Most of the surfaces can be wiped with a damp cloth if exposed to dirt or grime.
  • Avoid leaving any of our wooden product in direct sunlight, as it may warp certain woods and/ or the coating may fade over time.
