Sand and Water Table
When children partake in small world play at the sand and water table it provides them with a myriad of exploratory learning opportunities. Children’s play at the sand and water table is accompanied by much communication as they share the delights of the sand and water. Their vocabulary develops as children experiment with words to articulate their experience and joy. As they play with the different materials they are exposed to the different textures, material properties and sounds. A child develops their five senses without even realising it when playing at the sand and water table. For example, a child must first engage in water play before they can begin to describe its wetness, coolness, reflections, drops, ripples and splashing sounds.
Filled with damp sand, soil, woodchips, moss or even leaves, a sand and water table provides a unique sensory experience. Not only do the children learn about the properties of the materials within the sand and water table, but they can extend its use to encompass role play. The table, filled with soft play animals or little figures suddenly becomes a magical world children can explore through their own imagination and creativity.
A sand and water table is the perfect vehicle for encouraging cooperative play. Children learn to take turns, sharing the different accessories and toys that accompany play at the sand and water table. 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.
