Kinetic Sand...i'ts Magic!!!
The children at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach love kinetic sand.
The makers of Kinetic sand describe it as 98% sand and 2% magic
Kinetic sand is fantastic sensory play material. It behaves similarly to wet sand, so it can be moulded and shaped.
There are many ways in which to incorporate learning into kinetic sand activities. Children can practice shaping, scooping, squeezing, digging and stamping shapes into kinetic sand.
This is wonderful for children to further develop their fine motor skills as well as to learn their shapes.
The magic of Kinetic sand is seen once it has been moulded and shaped into formations and then watch, as it slowly begins to move until it returns to its original form.
You can observe the changes in a child's demeanour as he or she becomes absorbed in feeling the sand move between the fingers. A child can almost seem hypnotised as their eyes watch the gradual movement of the sand.
This is the almost magical influence as the child becomes calm and engrossed.
