Baby Bilbies Play in the Sandpit

Updated: Jul 6, 2020

The Baby Bilbys love sandpit play in the shade.

Sand play promotes physical development. It is well suited to the explorative and imaginative nature of young children's minds.

There is no "right way" to use sand. It invites participation and provides them with a soothing sensory experience. Because a child has the freedom to determine the direction and path of play, the way is cleared for the child to build their own developmental concepts.

Large muscle skills develop as children dig, pour, sift, scoop, and enjoy the feel and smell of sand. Eye-hand coordination and small muscle control improve as children learn to manipulate sand accessories.
