Carla’s Treasure monochrome suitcase

This lovely monochrome suitcase contains a treasure basket collection of 15 sensory-rich items.

This sensory suitcase makes a perfect gift for children for any occasions. It’s great for being explored, for being carried around or for travelling with kids due to its size and lightweight nature => just so many options and open-ended play.

Treasure baskets are very popular among Montessori nurseries/schools or homes and are being used for educational purposes.

Treasure basket's benefits:
A treasure basket is a basket, tray, box or suitcase (like this case) filled with a variety of items, for example wooden objects or objects from the 'real world'.
• offers a young baby the first taste of freedom, independence, courage and concentration.
• develops hand eye coordination
• supports creative play
• facilitates learning
• provides: -the opportunity to explore and discover new things on children's own, also to make their own choices and decisions.
-rich mental stimulation which activates the growth of the brain
-richly satisfying experiences for the babies.

The adults role in the use of the treasure basket is to sit near by and be attentive, responsive and unobtrusive.
The treasure basket should not be left out 24/7 for your baby to play with. Ideally it is good to offer a session lasting between 15 minutes and an hour with the minimum of disruption on a daily basis. It is important to make sure that the babies/children are physically comfortable, when they are alert and refreshed, calm and content.

Safety Information: Children/Babies must be supervised at all times when playing with these items. Adults must regularly check the contents of the basket for damage and assess which items are suitable for their child depending on their age and ability.
It is the responsibility of the parent/caregiver to make a collection of suitable objects and to make sure they are cleaned and replaced when necessary.
This resource may present a choking hazard to younger children. It contains small pieces.

Care instructions: You can gently clean the objects in warm soapy water.

Wooden utensils/objects should be hand washed with a mild dish detergent and then hand-dried. Do not use a dishwasher.

Tips for wooden utensils: To extend their durability we would recommend oiling them. Mineral oil is highly preferable because it doesn’t turn rancid and it’s not a common allergen, but also coconut oil can be used.
Directions: Clean wooden object and dry. Follow by rubbing some oil onto a clean cloth and apply to wood into a circular motion. Then let it dry. You only need to rub in a small amount of oil. 
Oiling extends their practical lives.

Happy open-ended play!
