Sand Castles

No Hawaiian theme would be complete without a sand castle building adventure!


Using kinetic sand, shovels and tiny buckets, we created several sculptures and adorned them with real shells!


We made several impressive architectural wonders such as Scooby Doo’s house, a choo choo train, and a fire truck.


There are many benefits to sand play, the first being the development of the sense of touch through the texture of the sand.


Sand play also develops the arm, wrist, and hand muscles, strengthening grasping and wrist control.


Lastly, while playing with sand, young children also experiment with concepts such as volume, weight, and measurement.
