This is a traditional Montessori material used to develop hand-eye coordination and teach a child the concept of object permanence - the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be seen, heard, or otherwise sensed.
Children will also feel a sense of satisfaction when they have mastered the ability to drop the ball into the hole. This satisfaction then drives them to repeat the activity over and over again.
You can begin using this material whenever your child can sit well without support.
