Our handmade wooden Shapes Board with Stand and coordinating wood shape pieces is designed with multiple uses in mind – as a matching activity & puzzle for little hands, shape pieces for geometry practice, tracing, and exploration, & as an art display. Inspired by Montessori-style natural materials, this engraved board allows children to trace their fingers in the grooves of the wood & feel each shape while absorbing the beauty of each form in this crisp, clear, easy-to-read chart.
Our design features 18 basic shapes and their corresponding names, and all 18 shapes cut out in contrasting walnut wood pieces, plus a wooden stand for display.
INCLUDES: • Shapes Board • Wooden Display Stand • 18 Shape Pieces in a Cotton Bag
Crafted by hand in our Ohio studio from locally sourced wood. Sealed with food-grade mineral oil and safe for babies & children to enjoy. Made from plywood, maple, & walnut woods. Each item is unique and made-to-order; wood tone & grain will vary from piece to piece.
Board measures 13″ wide by 10″ tall and over 0.5″ thick, large enough to be a lovely heirloom piece in the school room and last through many years of home education and puzzle practice. Maple plywood board contrasts beautifully with the matching walnut shape pieces. Small shape pieces come in a cotton drawstring bag for easy storage.
Please note this is not a traditional puzzle where pieces fit down in a deep groove; it is a matching activity where kids can line up the walnut shapes on the board in the correct spots. The board is then fully functional as an art piece when not “in use” with the shape pieces. Shape pieces are also useful independently for games, tracing, or stamping in dough.
Wooden stand measures 10″ wide by 2″ tall and 3″ deep with a perfectly angled groove for holding your board.
