How An AR Sandbox Helps with Sensory Development for Kids

When you go to a museum and look amongst the many exhibits, you will notice that some are more popular than others. It is safe to say that the more interactive ones always draws more attention. The best part is that these exhibits and activities also help with sensory development of children. One cool feature is an augmented reality sandbox, also called an AR sandbox. At Breeze Creative, we are here to explain exactly what that is.

What Is An Augmented Reality Sandbox?

The Animated Sandbox is the best multi-user augmented reality sandbox in the world! This interactive experience is an exciting new twist on the classic sandbox in which users take part in changing and redesigning the topography of the sand.

Children will explore, create, and learn using their imagination. They will pile the sand to make mountains and dig out bodies of water. A sensor will detect the physical changes of the sand, and the projection will adjust accordingly in real time. Animals will react to the environment that users create and roam only in their natural habitat. This augmented reality sandbox excites and amazes visitors.  We can help you get started today.

An AR Sandbox Is The Sandbox of The Future

With the use of a sandbox, children are able to use more skills than you think. As they're scooping and sifting, dumping and molding, kids are learning about more than just what they can do with sand. They're also building critical practical skills and learning social and emotional lessons. During sand play, kids:

Use their hands to explore. Many experts agree that use of the hand is the primary way young kids learn about their surroundings. They need to touch, mold, and deconstruct; sand is perfect for that.Dig into imaginary play. During sandbox play, kids can become completely absorbed in their imagined mini-worlds.Strengthen finger and hand muscles and improve coordination, which are precursors for handwriting, many sports and self-sufficiency tasks like buttoning clothes and tying shoes.Add to their sensory vocabulary. Sand can feel like so many adjectives: rough, smooth, bumpy, squishy, runny, dry and more.Practice social skills. It is easy to accidentally obliterate another kid's work in the sandbox, so kids learn to take care and share small spaces. They also learn that it's important to keep digging tools and sand low in the box, so it doesn't hurt other little faces.Collaborate. Watch four or five kids working on a massive road-building project in a sandbox and you'll witness some amazing brainstorming, collaboration, and negotiation.Experience impermanence. Nothing is set in sand. Castles fall over. It rains. In life, everything changes eventually, so kids can learn to enjoy things for the moment and create something amazingly different and just as awesome next time.
