Wooden Sandpit, Just for Sand??? Defiantly Not!!!

  I was kindly sent a hexagonal Sandpit ( rrp £59.99) from Garden and it has spurred on lots of ideas.  Many people think that you just put sand in a sandpit but it can be used for lots of different sensory play!!
Hexagonal Wooden Sandpit

 As I used to be a nursery nurse we used to let the Children play with all types of materials.  Obviously Children Love sand play, they could spend hours feeling the sand in between their fingers or building sand castles and knocking them down again.  We also let the children play with water, rice, pasta, play balls and shredded paper.

 When I received the sandpit I was very excited as Annabelle has never had one before, not even a plastic one.  We are moving house over the weekend and luckily it can just be placed outside on the french windows under cover so ideal for the winter season.  It comes with a cover and a sheet to put underlay for protection which is great! It is the nicest looking sandpit I have seen!  As it is wood it will last longer than a plastic one and will look cleaner, as plastic ones look a bit 'old' after a while.

  It measured 1.5 m across so will fit Annabelle, Callum and a couple of their friends! Well to be honest they would have no choice as it looks so appealing!

  I would say that this is for all ages of children, obviously babies would need supervision but I quite happily let Annabelle play and know she wouldn't hurt herself.

 As I like multi-purpose toys I would say the only down side with wooden is you can't use water, but it can be mixed with sand! As this is such a nice product i don't mind having a separate tray for water as its worth it.

 As I am in the middle of moving house (madness) I will be the photos up asap and a video up next week!! :)
