Children have an intuitive sense of spatial ability. When they close their eyes to visualize an image they are essentially using their “minds eye” to concentrate and problem solve.
Sand offers the children a unique medium for artistic expression and open’s up a world beyond paint and clay. Interpreting the world through different modalities provides the children with an opportunity to recognize their spatial talent. Developing the spatial intellect is as important as developing linguistic, mathematical, kinesthetic and social skills. After all Albert Einstein gathered his basic insights and inspirations from spatial models and imagery. Sculpting sand will help fulfill their need for artistic expression while fostering cognitive development.
