The gorgeous Grapat Natural Free Play Tray is wonderful both for contained play and toy storage. It helps to keep all of the pieces of a set of toys together and the enclosed, isolated space both encourages respect and inspires imaginative play by children.
Having toys spread out across a room can be overwhelming; using this beautiful open wooden box by Grapat helps kids to concentrate on what's in front of them and avoid losing individual pieces. The box can also holds sensory games when it’s filled up with sand, flour, salt, or rice.
Adding to the beauty of the tray are four stamped elements: earth, water, air, and fire, encouring nature play and sorting games.
According Reggio Emilia, a leader in the promotion of play-based learning, order and beauty are fundamental because when the material is organised it invites and generates moments of quality play.
Being hand-finished from natural materials, each of Grapat's beautiful offerings is unique, with slightly different shaping, paint finishes, wood grain, texture, and occasional wood knots showing.
