Sand Through Their Fingers

At Dragongfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we understand that sand play offers many opportunities to use and develop the fine motor skills of the children. Using tools like mini shovels, scoops, rakes, spoons and buckets not only supports their fine motor skills but also develops hand-eye coordination

Playing in the sand is also an enjoyable form of independent play as well as encouraging interaction with their peers. When these little ones share sand toys or dig a hole together, they are practicing social skills like language skills, problem-solving, taking turns, and collaboration.

Sand play is particularly beneficial for developing a sense of texture. Sand is initially a new and different texture for them to feel on their skin in contrast to dirt, grass, concrete, and wood which they would be familiar with

Look how busy they are!.
