Explore Social and Emotional Development
Your child’s inner explorer will come out when they see this dinosaur Easter basket! Role playing helps your child develop their social-emotional skills when they create storylines and emulate behaviors. The large design of the sand and water table also allows you child to play with other children while practicing important social skills, such as sharing and taking turns.
Conquer Cognitive Development
Not only will this dinosaur Easter basket bring hours and hours of enjoyment, but it introduces several ways to expand your child’s cognitive development.
Splashing in the water and pouring sand through their fingers allows your children to explore several senses at once, such as textures, temperatures, sights, and sounds. Water and sand play also introduces your child to early physics concepts and teaches them cause and effect.
As your little archeologist digs for dinosaurs and stomps them through the sand box, their imaginations soar. Creating unique thoughts and building scenarios is another great exercise in cognitive development.
Building Physical and Motor Skills
Scooping sand and pouring water through buckets are both great ways to help your child develop important motor skills. As they handle these toys, they’re practicing physical dexterity as well as hand-eye coordination.
