Sensory play can be thought of as “food for the brain.” It naturally helps to develop the sense of touch, strengthens fine-motor muscles, invites scientific inquiry, and supports the discovery and differentiation of material properties. Sand is a staple of the early childhood classroom. It can be wet or dry, cool or warm, smooth or rough, sculpted, molded and more. We’ve included four types of Jurassic Sand, (mined in Utah), which offer a variety of textures, sizes, and colors. This kit’s tools and materials support systems thinking, understanding of mathematical concepts, and compel children to revisit their discoveries over and over again. With the Sensory System Sand Kit, learning comes naturally.
