This week we continued to enjoy our outside time. We spent much of our time scooping, digging and sifting sand. As children poured sand from one container to another they strengthened their hand-eye coordination and fine motor abilities. We then added water to the sand by using the water pump! The addition of water gave children the opportunity to experience and manipulate different sensory textures.
Sand and water play has become a favorite time for our class! Children enjoy adding new materials such as construction trucks, funnels, brooms or tree stumps!
Here are just a few photos of our class exploring sand and water play!
