Rotating Sand Table
The Rotating Sand Table is a wonderous sand play experience for children: the lower table can be turned, so that sand or other materials can be shifted through the holes or down on a platform. The upper table has a sand bowl for mixing materials. There is a sieve to filter materials through and a funnel to shift materials from the upper to the lower table. The lower table can be turned to transport materials around to friends on the opposite side of the table. All these play options stimulate an understanding of cause and effect in the child, that feeds into logical thinking skills: if the lower table is turned, materials can be collected or discharged from the higher table. A wealth of manufacturing possibilities in the Rotating Table, producing or transporting, motivate cooperation and dramatic play, and thus communication skills.
