There are so many benefits to sand play, from developing arm and h& motor skills, to lớn feeling different textures. It also is a great way to encourage social skills such as sharing. "How early is too early" is a question I"ve been asked countless times over my 25 years of selling play sands, as well as being a geologist for 42 years (read about my credentials) and a Dad. So I agree with the recommendation that children can begin to play in the sandbox at 12 months old & base this on two primary sources: the US Consumer Product Safety Commission publication Age Determination Guidelines: Relating Children"s Ages khổng lồ Toy Characteristics và Play Behavior (CPSC Staff Document, September 2002, pages 26-27) which I quote:

"Toddlers from 12 through 18 months of age...thoroughly enjoy water and svà play and are given many opportunities for exploration through sand, water and related toys".

Our second source is the Toy Industry Association (TIA) and their use và endorsement of the above reference in meeting the required US Toy Safety Standards. PlaySafe.org, a site created for parents by parents at the TIA lists toy suggestions for infants ages 6 to 12 months old that include a sandbox & svà toys for those babies that can sit up. You can see their buying guide here.

We"ve sầu all seen lots of infants that can barely crawl enjoying a day at the beach & eating s&, and I"ve personally supervised many toddlers younger then 10 months of age playing in the 4th of July sandbox I set up each year at our local thành phố festival. I can personally atdemo to lớn the fact that playing in clean sand is without doubt one of the most valuable, if not the most valuable, learning experiences they will have in their formative sầu years!

Now a child"s safety is always our top concern so if you think your baby is lớn young for a sandbox, we recommover trying out a sensory bin first. You can fill this with oatmeal, shredded paper, or clean play s&. These are great sensory materials that help ready children for a sandbox & you can gauge how they vày with different textures and tactile experiences. Give them some spoons & other toys và let them bury, dig, và explore.

Even given official guidelines, we recognize the importance of parental supervision and certainly encourage parents, grandparents, care-givers, etc khổng lồ always be on guard.

Eating sand, getting it in your eyes, hair, ears & clothes is never a pleasant experience as anyone who has been lớn the beach can atthử nghiệm. As always, we urge caution and diligence but I can pretty much guarantee your child & grandchildren will have sầu have sầu so much fun they won"t want lớn leave!
