The Complete Wet Sand Area 3-4yrs can be a favourite place to play – children are fascinated by the tactile ability to shape and mould wet sand. By providing a variety of buckets, beakers, sand tools and natural materials, children can make comparisons between size and shape as well as opening up opportunities for storytelling and imaginative play.
Exploring, moulding and moving wet sand holds a fascination for many children. Flattening sand and smoothing it to make impressions is a pleasurable experience that supports young children’s early mark making. Vehicles, people, natural materials and animals also encourage imaginative play and storytelling. Our Complete Wet Sand Area 3-4yrs will engage children in a wealth of imaginative and mathematical thinking. Pipes, tubes and measures promote investigation and problem solving. We’ve also included a selection of boats, helicopters, people and sea creatures, along with natural materials for storytelling.
