Ensuring valuable transferable skills which helps children build confidence, self esteem and develops problem solving skills encountered along the way.
It is also beneficial to children with Learning Difficulties, Autism, Aspergers as well as helping children with ADD and ADHD.
Children use their concentrating skills by focusing on peeling the different pre-cut areas of the picture cards, pouring sand over the adhesive area ensuring complete coverage. I have seen on many occasions how children loose themselves in the concentration and imagination process. Children you wouldn't think enjoy the experience.
Children start to use their thinking, planning and decision making skills from the time they choose which picture they would like to turn into their masterpiece. They start by planing which section to peel off first, paying attention to details thinking which colours to use depending on the picture they have chosen. With the 21 colours of sands available, children can become more creative by using different colours together and creating different effects with the coloured sand on the same areas. Their creativity is limitless.
When developing their picture they think positively about their creation having a real sense of self-expression and achievement and a sense of pride as their picture continues to develop giving them lots of confidence.
Children improve their imagination through confidence and creativity. After they have chosen their picture they then decide what coloured sand to use on each section, they use their imagination as the picture comes alive always thinking about the colours they use and the finished product. Children use their imagination in different ways no two pictures are the same.
EXAMPLE: My grandson was helping me do some sample pictures, he took the fighter jet picture, I said don't forget it is a fighter jet so this section should be RED like fire coming out of its engines, he said I know nana. He went away and came back with the finished pictrure. I said he had done a good job (but the sky was all black) so I said, you have done a good job but don't you think this area (sky) should be blue as the plane is in the sky, and he replied "no nana it's night time" hence childrens imagination.
You can use techniques such shading putting different colours together giving a fantastic finished product. OUR MOTO IS - THE ONLY LIMITATION IS YOUR IMAGINATION.
Children use their motor skills / hand-eye co-ordination whilst peeling the different pre-cut areas of the picture card. They pour sand over the picture by squeezing the bottle of sand over the area of revealed adhesive making sure no white areas are left uncovered. These skills are used by deciding which areas are best next to peel off and colour.
Why we use sand bottles and trays, because you can direct the sand exactly where needed which saves a lot of sand being wasted, it is collected in trays which can then be put back into the bottles using the funnel provided saving your sand for more pictures.
