Benefits of Water play
We understand children gain a lot from water play which is why we stock equipment that helps facilitate this type of play.
Some of the known advantages of water play include:
Allowing sensory Exploration
An excellent form of sensory play, water play offers numerous activities that encourage children to use their senses. This kind of sensory exploration allows them to reap the many benefits of sensory play.
Problem-Solving Skills and Creativity
As children use various water play items, they can invent various games and challenges. This thinking outside-the-box and finding solutions to these challenges, helps them to be creative and proficient at solving problems.
Enhances development of Gross and Fine Motor Skills
Activities such as pouring, filling, dumping, squirting, splashing, mixing, squeezing, squishing and carrying of water play equipment, enhances development of both gross and fine motor skills in younger children.
Water is one of, if not the most, soothing and calming substances available to children. As they feel, splash, pour, swish and squeeze water, they laugh and experience fun.
The fun grabs and can hold children’s attention, which greatly reduces tension by calming the frustrated, anxious or angry children.
Develops hand-eye coordination
Activities like pouring, squirting and squeezing, enable each child to learn how to control the direction and size of a splash of water. These activities help improve their sense of accuracy and control.
Builds social and communication skills
Water play allows communal play. Children playing with peers or siblings are more enthusiastic and build on their confidence.
Many water play items are designed to bring about cooperation in children. As they play together, or alongside each other, children develop communication and socialising skills. You’ll find that they learn the importance of sharing materials and ideas too.
Enhances concentration and focus
Water play has a tendency to captivate children, making them prone to spending long periods of time playing and exploring.
The activity that holds a child’s attention for a length of time improves concentration and focus with time.
Helps with the learning of Maths and Scientific concepts
Water play helps children learn mathematical concepts such as:
Scientific concepts such as:
• Water is a liquid (it pours and takes containers shape)
• Water makes soil or sand heavier
• Sand texture changes when Water is added or removed
• Air (wind) moves water (bubbles)
• Water passes through space (through a sieve)
• Water can turn to solid when cold (freezing) and back to liquid again (Ice Melting)
• Various items float on water, others sink
Improves kids’ language and vocabulary
Water offers an opportunity for learning many new things. Activities as well as water playground equipment encourage children to use new vocabulary.
