In The Secret of Childhood, Montessori wrote that the human hand… “not only allows the mind to reveal itself but enables the whole being to enter into special relationships with its environment.” Manipulative activities like these engage hands and eyes in a practical task that satisfies the child’s need for purposeful work. At the same time, such activities offer unique physical challenges that help children develop concentration and learn to coordinate their most important “tools”: eyes and hands!
