Kids who are sensitive to or avoidant of “messy play” experiences (or who are hesitant to try out new things in general) will likely be open to engaging with Calming Sand due to its soft, non-sticky texture. Even though it looks and acts like wet sand, it is soft, dry, and cool to the touch. It doesn’t get stuck in your fingernails and doesn’t feel sticky or scratchy. Perfect for kids with tactile defensiveness. Even if the child is not open to touching the Calming Sand right away, they can easily engage with it by using a tool such as a spoon in order to avoid touching it but still get used to engaging with it.
The Sand can be squeezed, shaped and moulded into particular formations...but then it slowly begins to move until it returns to its original natural form.
The Sand never dries out. This makes it easy for parents and teachers alike to store it! It can be presented in a tray or box on the shelf in the child's prepared environment and then left there without concern. It will stay fresh and usable - no special sealing or storing required!
