Sand and Water Tables
Sand and Water Tables are an essential piece of playground equipment because they provide children with a myriad of exploratory learning opportunities. As children play and delight in the fun and mess they create they are also learning.
For example, their vocabulary develops as children experiment with words to articulate their experience and joy. As they play with different materials their senses identify different textures and properties. Consequently a child develops their five senses without even realising it. A water filled table for example encourages a child to describe its wetness, coolness as well as the reflections, drops and ripples.
Educational fun at the sand and water table:
- Supports cooperative play as well as inspiring imagination
- develops motor skills and hand to eye coordination
- engages a child’s senses
- helps a child’s understanding of different textures and properties
- great for messy and fun play
- promotes language and an increased awareness of vocabulary
Filled with damp sand, soil, woodchips, moss or even leaves, provides a unique sensory experience. Not only do the children learn about the properties of the materials but they also extend its use to encompass role play. The table, filled with soft play animals suddenly becomes a magical world children explore through their own imagination and creativity.
The essential piece of messy play equipment
A sand and water table is the perfect vehicle for encouraging cooperative play because children learn to take turns. Sharing the different accessories and toys that accompany play at the sand and water table consequently supports collaborative play.
Ideal for indoor or outdoor use, it is an ideal piece of all-weather equipment. Messy play allows children to explore and make sense of the world in which they live. A sand and water table is the focal point of such play and the staple piece of equipment for messy play activity.
