This Set of Outdoor Buckets & Spades has been chosen to help children explore sand and gravel areas, being a small size for individual, independent use. With bright bold colours and matching rope, as well as a solid silicone handle, the buckets are easy for children to grip as are the spades with their short handles. A super set for investigating, transporting and moving materials outdoors.
The open-ended nature of this natural material makes the sand area a favourite place for children to be. Children will enjoy the challenge of exploring sand using a variety of buckets, graduated beakers and sand moulds, experiencing the properties of sand and comparing size and shape. By including a range of scoops and rakes within the provision this will encourage children to explore the properties of sand and create interesting surface patterns. Small world brings exciting opportunities for re-creating familiar events – and along with natural materials, the small world resources will inspire much storytelling.
In early years, EYFS, children need a variety of opportunities to stimulate their mathematical, investigative and imaginative thinking. Providing a well-organised sand area with a good range of equipment that can be used to explore sand and create stories with small world, will help children to develop many aspects of their learning.
To further enhance this set why not invest in our Set of Natural Logs, Poles & Stones and watch as children build and create unique habitats for our Set of Outdoor Wild Animals or our Set of Outdoor Dinosaurs.
