Hands-on approach to sensory play with sand

In a world where "tidy" and "clean" are often prized, sand and water play equipment is all about getting messy! A sensory activity that's equally enjoyable alone or with friends, children, primarily toddlers, will grip the squishy sand and delight in the slippery water. When children use the sand and water play equipment together, they'll learn to take turns and creatively collaborate on what to build next!

Find a variety of sand and water sensory play equipment below, including some themed options like our Mermaid's Fountain and Dolphin Work Station that'll ignite their imagination and spark more creative play!

    The Benefits of Sand and Water Play Equipment 

    When children get their hands into sand and water play equipment, they're grabbing onto important creative and cognitive development opportunities. The tactile experience teaches them cause-and-effect as they construct shapes with the sand, and their finished creation will give the child a sense of success and accomplishment. The KOMPAN water play equipment for schools encourages children to engage together by learning to take turns and inspire each other with creativity.

    A staple of preschool playground equipment, sand and water sensory play is a platform for creative expression and experimentation. Playground play panels and other toddler equipment encourage the same type of tactile learning.

    Vibrant Colors & Sturdy Materials  

    The sand play equipment comes in many vivid colors that attract and draw children into hours of play. The richness of tactile activities waiting to be explored will keep children wanting to stay and play, and ready for their next visit. Public playgrounds with sand and water play equipment are always popular spots and toddlers should take advantage of all the benefits that come with this type of sensory play. If you prefer a natural playground aesthetic over a bright, colorful play space, consider our organic wooden Robinia option.
