We have recently sorted our provision in the water tray to ensure a focus on #finemotorskills primary over than #grossmotorskills, so we enhanced the water tray by adding a washing line. There was barely space to wash the clothes in the end as everyone wanted to join in. As well as wringing the clothes of water and in turn developing gross motor skills they also developed their fine motor skills by squeezing open the pegs! Also lots of fun!
Sand and Water Tables: Boxes in Boxes. I love this idea for sand because it creates a 3D experience that children can explore for an open ended experience when using a sand table. By reaching into boxes and poking heads in and around boxes, this creates an ultimate experience with sand by looking over and under boxes. This is also great for children's imaginations - they can even bring props into this sand table to create a story.
Every backyard should have at least one outdoor play space for kids. Sand and water tables are a perfect option! They are a great way for kids to have fun while staying cool in the backyard. They are primarily used for sensory play, but they can also be used for learning activities, science projects, and pretend or imaginative play. This article contains several options that you can DIY or buy today!
