Digging in West Sand

What to have Sandbox Water

What to do Digging in wet sand is a good way for toddlers to work alongside other toddlers and also have a sensory experience that helps build motor skills. On a warm day, add a bucket or more of water to the sandbox outside. Provide shovels for digging, containers for scooping and modeling, big dump trucks, and other sandbox toys. Encourage two or more toddlers to play with the sand and use parallel talk to describe what they are doing. Call each child by name and encourage social interactions.

Why - to promote the development of gross- and fine-motor skills - to promote social development
