Sand and Water play is an innovative way for kids to learn, exercise and have fun outdoors. Children just love to pour, scoop, mix, dunk, splash, squirt, squish, sift, crawl, and even draw as they play in water or sand. They are unknowingly learning as they have fun. While shovelling sand or collecting water in small buckets they are developing hand eye coordination. Their coordination skills are also exercised building sand structures or pouring water from one toy to the next.
Through sensory exploration young children will enhance their communication and motor skills and greatly accelerate cognitive development. Sand and water play can also help children gain a basic understanding of maths and scientific concepts as well as developing social and language skills. Children tend to lose themselves in sand and water play and any activity that holds their attention for long periods of time will help them into formal learning as being able to concentrate in the classroom is a vital skill.
Though it can be messy at times sand and water play offers learning benefits for children that far outweigh the clean-up. Encouraging your children to play outdoors is easy with our selection of sand and water play tables. For something that has versatility take a look at our activity tables. All our tables have deep bases so you can bring the beach to your garden. You won’t need to worry about your child’s safety as you will be in your very own garden. However, always supervise children while they are playing. Keep your kids nice and cool by using our activity tables for water play. Alternatively try out our sandpits that allows children to play and create together in one open area. To take their imagination to a new level, we have a mud kitchen, so they can be head chef and serve some surprises – who doesn’t like a sand pie.
