Buttoning Frame With Small Buttons
This dressing frame features two poly-cotton fabric panels with five small plastic buttons. The fabric panels can be easily removed from the hardwood frame for cleaning. Hardwood frame measures 30 cm x 31 cm.
The purpose of this product is to teach the child how to button and unbutton. This exercise helps to develop the child’s eye-hand coordination, concentration and independence.
The direct aim in using the Montessori Dressing Frames is to help and encourage a child to dress independently. The child is indirectly advancing in fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Each dressing frame focuses on one aspect of dressing and allows the child to practice each step several times in order to perfect it.
Children can start to work with the dressing frames from 24-30 months onwards (or even earlier with the simple frames). The direct goal of this activity is to learn how to use the different ways of fastening and to take care of oneself by improving the psycho- motor and eye-hand coordination. The indirect goals are also very important because working with the dressing frames will develop concentration and independency. It also helps to funnel the child’s will towards one goal and to exercise its intelligence because opening and closing dressing frames or other objects requires various strategies to make the actions effective.
Always start at the top. Small buttons take more control to manipulate; thus we present the small button frame after the child has mastered the large button frame. The same steps are followed in presenting the small button frame.
This product is also suitable for persons with disabilities, special needs and those recovering from brain injury.
