Are you taking one last trip to the beach this summer? Do you have a sandbox outside that your children can use before the weather doesn’t allow outside play? These awesome kinetic sand activities are perfect for helping kids work on fine motor skills in your homeschool.
I love that play can be considered learning now. In a traditional school, there is playtime, recess, outdoor play. The idea of play is held at a different level as actual academic learning.
However, playing and learning can be synonymous. Playing kids are kids who are working through thoughts, imaginations, activity, healthy movement, critical thinking and more.
These sensory kinetic activities are perfect examples of how playing and learning are meshed into a well-rounded experience for your kids. For some children, these types of learning experiences are calming sensory occurrences and perfect for tactile therapeutic play.
