This week our theme at Die Sterreweg was the Ocean. What is better than sand play?
Sandplay is an awesome tactile stimulating form of play. It is so nice for developing all sorts of skills such as fine motor skills, bilateral hand use, hand eye coordination and learning concepts of cause and effect. The children were even drawing shapes and numbers in the wet sand and counting shells.
Our autistic children absolutely love this form of play. It really helps with development of a functioning tactile system.
