If you have a little one or a crew of little ones that enjoy going outside and getting dirty, did you know that such play can actually help them work on all of their different sensory skills, such as their visual and tactile senses? There are actually a number of great Sensory Toys that you can get for your child that will give them the same feeling of getting dirty outside, but in a much more controlled setting.
For a child who loves to dig and explore in a sandbox but the weather won't permit it all year round, investing in a sand and water tray might be a fabulous choice for you to make for your kids. A See-Thru Sand and Water Table is a great choice to make. This see-thru tub is deep but not so deep little arms and hands can't enjoy it and has a splash guard so it's handy to use inside or out.
The deep tub can either be filled with sand or water and let your kids experiment by floating toys one day in water and then digging and burying them in the sand the next. It will create firm memories of wet and dry as well as textures of sand and water for your children.
Your children may not be in school yet, but they are ready to explore and learn every waking moment. Give them toys that stimulate their minds and watch as they explore and create new imaginary worlds with a sand and water table.
