Sand Activities for Kids


Sand is such a simple, cheap, fun, and versatile sensory material – we love it!

Ever since my parents-in-law built a sandbox for E in our backyard, we’ve played with sand at least once a week.

Looking back at our activities so far, I definitely think we should use it for more crafts and art activities, not “just” sensory activities – although those are all kinds of awesome, of course!
