Educational tool

An open-ended educational tool for the early years of school, combining math and embroidery to improve children’s fine motor skills.

As a consequence of the constant presence of screens over the past decade, craft teachers in Sweden have observed a steep deterioration in children’s fine motor skills. Simple tasks such as cutting with scissors, tying knots, and buttoning buttons have suddenly turned into tough obstacles in children’s everyday life.

 ntroducing KLURA, an educational tool that integrates practical and theoretical skills. KLURA offers a new, fun way to explore math while exercising the child’s fine motor control, and is the result of an extensive concept exploration with valuable input from experts and educators. Its simplistic and playful design enables endless configurations and transforms KLURA into a creative construction toy, approved by the children of Djupadalsskolan.
