Did you know that children learn best when they can control and act upon their own environment? That’s why playing with different mediums—such as sand, water, clay, and playdough—can help them develop new skills and master new concepts. Why? Creative play and hands-on experiences give children the opportunity to see, touch, learn, and express themselves.
Sand and water experiences help children grow in all areas of development, from literacy to engineering and building to social skills. Sand and water activities allow children to have hands-on experiences, gain confidence, and move to higher levels of learning.
Head to the backyard and try these sand and water activities that create a stimulating and curiosity-provoking environment for your child!
