What our experts think
A sensory set with a variety of learning tasks involving sand, which makes developing dexterity, shape and letter formation fun. Mark making in the sand teaches children confidence with using a pincer grip, which is great for developing their pen control.
The children enjoyed using their colour matching skills to count how many sticks were needed to complete each picture. Our testers found that the set was particularly good for those struggling with letter formation as practising writing words in the sand is less daunting than putting pencil to paper.
– Great for encouraging colour matching and sorting
– Develops pincer grip and dexterity
– Encourages letter formation and writing
