Dry sand has a wonderful sensory quality and will capture and hold children’s attention for sustained periods of time. Watch the sand gently fill the compartments of this wheel before it begins to turn and tip. This Sand Wheel, measuring 30cm in height, is robust, colourful and will encourage mathematical and scientific thinking.
The sand wheel acts as a great sensory tool and allows interaction with sand to see how objects change the flow and direction of water. Children develop fine motor skills and improve hand eye coordination whilst creating endless imaginative games together and on their own. Your children also develop fundamental communication and social skills for later in life from engaging playtime.
A natural open ended resource, sand proves irresistible to children. Their desire to experiment leads to rich learning opportunities across the curriculum as they’ll enjoy pouring and filling containers – sand can also be used as a context for imaginative play.
For more resources take a look at our Dry Sand investigations.

Dimensions – L 16cm x H 30cm x W 15cm.
