Many people don't understand why children are so obsessed with ordinary sand and water. In fact, playing with sand can bring children a lot of benefits. They can feel happy while playing and can train corresponding abilities at the same time.

3. Learn about sand
When babies play with sand, they discover the properties of sand and water. For example, dry sand is scattered, but wet sand can be squeezed into balls, or holes can be made in wet sand. They will also learn that sand is very useful in life. Sand is needed to build tall buildings and repair roads.
4. Develop creativity
Creativity is at the heart of intelligence. Playing with sand itself has no fixed gameplay and inevitable results, so give babies a lot of space to let their imagination and creativity go. Sand is invisible and can be changed at will according to children's preferences. They can dig holes, dig ditches, etc. in the sand at will. Interesting games encourage the baby to invent more different ways to play, and the baby's creative consciousness and ability gradually grow up. By playing with sand, children's hand movements are exercised, and children's observation, imagination and cognitive abilities are cultivated.

Children are naturally curious and like to explore the world around them. Playing with sand can satisfy children's interest in exploring nature. The slippery sand gives them a very comfortable feeling, and the baby can play in their favorite way, feeling the fun of self-control, and their mood will be very happy. For those babies who lack self-confidence or are more withdrawn and introverted, it is more satisfying and fulfilling.
