See why children like playing with sand.

All children including me writing this article at one point in time during our early days played with sand.Parents keep wondering why their children or growing infants likes playing with sand. It seems as if there is a connection between sand and little children. Worry no more, see why children play with and the benefits that come with doing so.

Playing in the sand can be a great opportunity for children to have A great play time.Whether shaped into castles, dug, dripped, sifted, or buried, sand can take many different forms, thus offering endless opportunities for fun and learning!

Allowing your child to play in the sand by themselves and with others helps them to develop fine motor skills like those necessary to use a small shovel, pull a truck, and build a castle or moat. By burying themselves in sand, and feeling their body position within the sand, children are engaging their proprioceptive sense, or the sense of their body relative to space. Writing words in the sand offers a chance to develop language skills. Parents can ask questions to capitalize on the language play that can occur in the sand

Sand play is particularly beneficial for developing a sense of textures. Not only is sand a new and different texture for children to feel on their skin, but the contrast it creates with concrete, grass, dirt, and wood will emphasize the sensation of each surface.

So next time as a parent you see you child playing with sand, take a second and observe them, it doesnt only make them stain themselves, it has benefits also.
