Put your hands in it

Sand is not important, from a sandbox or kinetic – first of all it is good because the material is natural and affordable. It has many positive properties – loose, cool, helps to relieve nervous tension, allows you to relax. Sand is perfect for games of children of different ages, plastic and malleable, it will help the development of fine motor skills, imagination and creative abilities.

In addition, joint exercises with the sand of children and parents will not only allow everyone to have fun, but also bring family members closer together.

Kinetic sand is ordinary sand, in which an absolutely safe, hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly plasticizer is added for viscosity and elasticity. Kinetic sand, unlike ordinary sand, does not dry out in air, but it is better not to store it in the open form so that dust and other contaminants do not settle on it.

If water got into the kinetic sand, it doesn’t matter: its properties can be returned, it’s worth drying the composition in the oven at a temperature of 170 to 200 degrees for 7-10 minutes.

To work with cosmic sand, it is enough to make some space for the sandbox on the floor or on the table, where it is more convenient. Protecting fabric or oilcloth spreading around the sandbox will help to keep the floor clean. So that the child is not bored with pouring sand, during the game you should use a variety of tasks for which you will need additional material.

The sets with space sand are sold and molds, and you can bribe or use toys (for example, plastic), which, having finished to play, will be easy to clean off the sand. Before the game, young children need to explain that there is no sand, and in order to prevent it from getting into the nose or eyes, you need to properly shake off the pens.

And do not forget to wear an apron on the child!

What is under the mold?

For children of 3-4 years, the most simple and traditional games with molds are most suitable: pour sand into a mold (with hands or a scoop), crush it and make a cookie or figure, depending on the mold. With the help of games with thematic molds (that is, having the form of animals, fruits, etc.) it is possible to form not only motor skills, but also to develop speech. The kid makes, for example, fruits from sand, and the adult calls them: “This is a pear,” “This is an apple,” and asks the child to repeat the names.

To complicate the game you need to call the properties of the fruit, for example: “sweet pear, sour lemon.” And after such a game, you can try real fruits to fix the result. Thus, children develop the ability to perceive not only natural objects, but also to associate them with substitute objects, that is, imagination and abstract thinking is formed.

Playing with sand is, among other things, a great way to communicate not only with parents, but also with peers! For preschoolers and younger school children, playing with sand will be even more interesting in the company of their peers.

We think, plan, build

All sorts of building games are no less useful and fascinating when children build houses out of sand, dig tunnels, pits, make slides. At the same time, imagination and spatial thinking are well developed. In addition, a plan of action – what, where and how they build an adult develops with the child.

The kid learns important planning skills for his activity, which in the future, at school, for example, will serve him well. Older guys (6-7 years old) also love to play with sand, and they will also need construction, but they will need more items for the game than the younger ones. If the molds they are no longer interested in, then building something for your favorite machines or dolls will surely please.

In addition, more young people will appreciate the multi-colored kinetic sand and the opportunity, with its help, to “paint” their creations.
