Blocks are an essential element of early childhood, but perhaps its time to change it up a bit!
Sandbags are unlike any common construction tool. A departure from wood blocks, the shape of a sandbag is only constrained by their flexible sleeve. In response, building with Sandbags causes children to rethink their construction techniques and learn new methods to create their masterpieces. It’s a new take on spatial awareness!
Use them outside in the sand, inside in the block area, or for imaginative play. Sandbags are dynamic enough to be used everywhere in the classroom.
Bags come in two sizes – the small are about the size of a cucumber when filled (3 1/2″ x 7″), and the large are about the size of a spaghetti squash when filled (about 5″ x 11″).
**Bags arrive empty, sewn on one end, so children can help fill them with sand or other material. Once filled, simply fasten the other end and unleash the imagination!
Note: bags start out white and turn a beautiful golden brown with use. 😉
