Last month, Creating Together introduced a new program feature: “Information Sessions” – opportunities for parents and caregivers to learn about the theory, thinking, tools and tips behind each of our learning stations.
While November’s feature was Block Play, this month we will be going over the benefits of Sand Play.
Did you know?
Did you know that sand play promotes physical development, hand-eye coordination, small muscle control, language development, mathematical skills and social skills?
How can you support your child?
Do you know how to support your child in getting the most out of their sand play? Try statements like “I wonder what would happen if . . .” and “Tell me about . . .”. To encourage play, include access to materials like measuring cups, ladles, funnels, sifters, colanders, or small manipulatives like plastic animals.
Bring your child and learn more on this Friday, December 7th, and stay for morning snack and circle time afterwards!
