Sensory Play

A sandbox is my favorite form of sensory play. I especially love it for my kiddos with Sensory Processing Disorder! Just the fact that they are touching it, is therapy enough!! Pair it with favorite toys to turn the experience into a positive one. Change the type of textures; you can use water, shaving cream, beads, pom-poms, water beads, rice, etc.

Sandboxes can also be used for:
* following simple directions
* requesting
* turn taking
* receptive language
* expressive language
* hand-eye coordination
