Sandpits are one of the best pieces of children’s playground apparatus going. Schools and parents have been using them for decades and with good reason, as they provide everything you could look for in a piece of children’s play equipment.
Fun and development
First things first, sandpits are just great fun for kids. Young children are fascinated by sand and there’s plenty of related activities that can keep them occupied.
For example, give kids a bucket and spade and they’ll be able to get to work building a sand castle. Not only is this enjoyable, it helps to develop their creative skills and imagination, plus it’s easy for adults to get involved as well.
Other toys like plastic lorries can be used to move the sand around and engage a child’s imagination in a similar way.
Sandpits make it easy to play games that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. For instance, youngsters can use the sand to pretend they’re at the beach or in the desert – providing further fuel for their imagination.
Cheap and easy
While young kids love sandpits, they are also great from a practical point of view. Sandpits are one of the most affordable pieces of playground equipment you can hope to find and you can even make them yourself relatively easily.
Keep it covered
If you invest in a sandpit, it’s important to ensure it’s covered so children will be protected from the sun and other elements. This will also help to make sure the sand remains clean and is safe to play with.
