UnBoxIT

The “UnBoxIT” game aims at improving visual recognition, language development, and motor planning skills. The child is called to find the pairs of objects that are hidden in boxes that can be opened when the hand stays steady for few seconds.

The teacher/therapist can choose among various libraries of objects (e.g. animals, furniture, fruits, weather, clothes, etc.) thus empowering child’s ability to recognize objects from various conceptual categories. Moreover, visual and/or audio distractors can be added in order to enrich child’s attention and concentration skills. Visual memory can be promoted by having objects that could slightly differ in the boxes.

Ready to find the pairs of similar objects which are hidden in the boxes?
