This is a cleverly designed Circular Sand and Water Tray. It has a helter-skelter design perfect for use as both a water channel or roadway. It has an outer trough which together stimulate imaginative play. The play opportunities are endless because of the unique design. Sand and water play is long seen as an essential element of a child’s learning and development because it encompasses so much of the curriculum.
The importance of sand and water play:
- combines science, physical development, maths as well as imaginative and creative play
- promotes calmness in stressed or anxious children
- develops a child’s senses
- perfect for free play
- generates cooperative and sharing play
Children naturally want to experiment with sand and water and this table allows them to do just that. For example, children can combine these elements together to understand changes in consistency and texture. The more sand in the table, the slower the water runs through it or the less sand the quicker the water runs over the top.
Adding other ingredients to water enhances a child’s learning and engagement. For example, you could add glitter to the water, food colouring or even soap suds and allow children to explore the different textures and effects.
This Circular Sand and Water Tray is large enough to allow children to play together. They can share ideas, imagination and creativity and by playing side by side they will develop social skills and emotional understanding.
Made from tough clear plastic with powder coated tubular steel support frame, it includes a drainage valve and plastic lid. Ideal for use indoors or outside.
