Yes, you can make the time spent in sandbox even more fun and allow for creative learning as well. Here are some ideas that are easy to implement and make for creative play:
- Water: Simply add some water to the sand. In fact you can have the kids do it and you will see how much fun they will have creating sand castles and other figures from the wet sand.
- Treasure Hunts: You can take small toys or animal figurines and hide them in the sand. Give the kids an idea of what all they can find buried in the sand and announce a prize for the kid to unearth the maximum number of toys. See them go wild at digging for each prized animal!
- Create scenery: Tell them to make a river using tin foil shaped like a tube and take them through the entire process of digging a trench and placing the tube shaped foils in it and then filling the tube with water to make the river flow!
