We have sand tables inside our classrooms and outside in our playground, but we only have sand outside in the ones in our playground; the sand is too damaging to our floors, so inside we use other sensory materials in our sandbox.
A few pictures of some of the items we use are found here....
- Packing peanuts- both the dis solvable and non- dis solvable kind.
- Ground up plastic
- Ground corn meal
- Cut up paper (also including scissors to cut it up)
- Corn starch and water -
- nature items
- any fun, safe items we can find
