Help Tips

For toddlers:

The first go around you will need to model for the child how to build. Teach the child words like fill up, pat, pour, stack.

For preschool age children:

Ask the child to help with measuring out each cup of flour and baby oil. They will love to mix the ingredients together as well so be sure to have a deep mixing bowl. This encourages the child to practice saying their numbers.

How to Play:

  1. Allow the children to build and create sand scupltures in the moon sand.
  2. You can also add theme sand toys such as beach, cooking utensils or construction trucks. This provides the children with an opportunity to pretend play being either a cook, construction worker or a civil engineer.
