What is sand and water play?

Sand and water play systems are all about getting messy playing with sand and water using hands or the entire body. Children can play either on their own or together.  A Commercial sand and water station is primarily designed for toddlers. In a world full of solid blocks and hard knocks, the sensory experience of something so delightfully tactile as slippery water and squishy sand is a welcome opportunity to play and learn simultaneously. Our commercial sand and water stations encourage children to engage and play together. Children learn to take turns, share ideas and inspiration, and collaborate with the creativity and ideas of others. 

'We offer sand and water stations available in several shapes, sizes, materials, and even themes like the Waterfall and Chain and Mermaid’s Fountain, helping to ignite the imagination and spark even more creative play!
