10Equip For Sensory Play

Babies LOVE sensory play, and the playground is the perfect place to engage your child in this kind of play, especially if your baby seems a little young to fully play on the playground structure. Sand play is an important part of childhood. Babies love the feel of sand between

their toes and fingers. Toddlers and preschoolers love sand for the building properties.

But, a lot of times, many parents don’t bring the sand toys with them.

It doesn’t take much in the way of equipment to keep your child busy in the sand. Pack some shovels and buckets. Don’t have those? No problem. A simple kitchen raid can solve that for you. Plastic containers, spoons and measuring cups can be used just as easily in place of sand toys.

Bring some plastic figurines, twigs and grasses, cars or tractors for added fun. Sand play helps in the development of the sense of touch as your little one feels and moulds sand while moving toys through it.

So the next time you find yourself bringing your child to the park, make sure you also pack the sand toys.
