Sand is one of the very best nature-made toys. Sand can become a massive landscape for toy monster trucks or a mini-birthday cake in a cup. Kids’ imaginations dig deep as the sandbox becomes a world unto itself. There're many benefits that sandboxes can bring to your beloved kids.
Use Their Hands to Explore
Many experts agree that using their hands is the primary way young kids learn about their surroundings. They need to touch, mould, and deconstruct; sand is perfect.
Dig into Imaginary Play
During sandbox play, kids can become wholly absorbed in their imagined mini-worlds.
Practice Social Skills
It’s easy to accidentally obliterate another kid’s work in the sandbox, so kids learn to take care of and share small spaces. They also learn that it’s important to keep digging tools and sand low in the box so it doesn’t hurt other little faces.
