A pre-cursor to teaching skills, this is very important for a young child. The movement of the wrist and hand muscles when the child moves the wooden cube cross the path is the same as is required and used by the child when he/she starts to write. This is a great way for a child to exercise and condition his/her wrist movement, fingers, and hand movement. And he's just playing!
Also provided is a wooden stencil that can be used to trace patterns of paper. Create designs using different colored dots and have the child copy them on the Maze Chase board.
