6 beechwood balls in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple. Diameter: 50 mm.

Although not one of the original Gifts, these beautiful wooden balls were introduced soon afterwards to demonstrate the transformation from the crocheted balls of Gift 1 to the solid sphere (ball) of Gift 2. A good example of Froebel's law of opposites.
The balls are coloured to match the crocheted balls of Gift 1 and are a versatile resource for exploring the characteristics of a ball, such as rolling, what happens when they strike each other (like in the game of bowls) or knocking things down (like in skittles). Can also be used as a form of beauty in creative structures. Knowledge, Life, Beauty all in one box!
