Sand play - Allowing your child to play in the sand helps develop social skills like problem solving, sharing and communication. Fine motor skill (small muscles of the hand and fingers) like those necessary to use when holding a scoop, pulling a truck or filling and compressing a sand mould, are developed.
Sand play is particularly beneficial for developing a sense of textures. Not only is sand a different texture for children to feel on their skin, but a contrast it creates with concrete, grass and wood will emphasis the sensation of each surface.
