In Sanskrit, Patal is the word for a wooden board and Anantpatal means a board with infinite possibilities! So presenting our traditional Montessori hundred Board with a bit of modification for more open-ended play so it can grow with your child. Anantpatal will help your little one to recognize, count numbers, do further math calculations, find patterns, and practice languages. It’s an amazing hands-on learning tool and fun too!

Our wooden 100 Board will help children develop an early understanding of counting, addition, and subtraction in a highly visual and tactile way. 100 Board features one hundred holes with a counters pocket, ready for your child to fill up while counting, creating patterns, practicing mathematical equations, discovering cardinal directions, and more.

From an early age, kids are encouraged to look for patterns, and their work pays off when they begin to use the 100 Board. Whether it's putting 5 red counters (or dried chickpeas, wooden balls, flower petals, felt balls) in the 1-5 spot, and then 5 blue counters in the 6-10 spots, and recognizing that 5 + 5 = 10 - and then repeating that pattern on the next line to see that 10 + 10 = 20, or using counters in groups (2, 4, 6, 8) to skip count, kiddos begin to see the patterns - which in turn lays the foundation for further math operations.

There is a myriad of ways to use the Anantpatal, although some of the ways we like to use it are through stories. We may construct words with alphabet counters, build sentences, play scrabble, or create designs, the toy comes with endless possibilities as the name suggest.

Ideas for playing with the Anantpatal 100 Board~

- Fill each hole in the frame for fine motor skills development — first with fingers and then with tongs while counting from 1 to 100.

 -Colour sorting with different colored balls while exercising simple counting

-Start adding and subtracting — add balls and take balls away to practice counting

-The engraved dividing lines help the child create subgroups of numbers, which means they can frame the number of items in a group quickly without counting each item individually. It is based on groups of five and whether it is more or less than five. They'll learn the number seven is five and two more. Or forty-three is the fourth row down and three holes overall without counting all forty-three dimples.

- Practice skip counting by placing counters only for numbers you're working on such as 3, 6, 9, etc. Notice the patterns that emerge.

- Designate a quadrant of the frame for you and one for your child. Place the counters in your quadrant a certain way and ask your child to copy them in their area (either exactly or as a mirror image).

- Practice forming/creating shapes, think of the board as a compass and ask your child to mark the holes that are 5 degrees west and 9 degrees south from the middle point.

- Learn positive and negative numbers by designating the middle point as 0. Then play with the X and Y axis (X being horizontal movement and the Y-axis being vertical movement). Thus, finding -3 on the X-axis is three dimples to the left of the middle.

- Play games such as rolling a dice and adding that many counters to the frame (starting at the top left corner). Then roll again and add that many. Continue until the frame is full.

  • In addition to counters, can use balls, acorns, eggs, pom poms, marbles, stones, or whatever creative idea you have!


The product comes with 100 Board and a set of 100 counters handwritten capital and small alphabets on one side and 1-100 numbers on the other.

If you would like to help your child count from 1-to 100, the numbered counters work to provide both visual and physical connections. As your child places the numbers and counts aloud, a deep neurological connection occurs through both the physical and oral acts combined. If this is your child's first time counting to 100 with numbers, it can be overwhelming, so encourage your child to look for patterns in the number positions. (For example, observe "I see that all the numbers in this row start with 3. Do you see all the numbers in the next row start with anything that's the same?" Or you can point out that all the numbers in the rows from the top to the bottom end in the same number.

Warning! This product contains a small ball which may present a choking hazard. Not suitable for children under 3 years old.
