Children have always needed interaction and socialization with other children.
A healthy outlet for their imagination in an outdoor environment is essential to their development.
The need for children to learn to play with other children and use their imagination in a healthy, safe and fun environment.
Sandboxes For Kids accomplish these goals by allowing children to learn healthy social skills and cooperating in a sense of togetherness and sharing.
It is widely accepted that the first sandboxes for kids where discovered in a Berlin Germany public park in the late 1800's and where called sand bergs.
The first sandboxes that came into existence in the United States were very large and called sand gardens. These originated in Boston Massachusetts and were part of a national trend towards public playground design.
The idea took hold quickly and numerous sand gardens appeared in Boston as well as New York. They were built along side housing areas and overseen by the women in the area. By the early part of the 20th. century these sand gardens spread throughout Europe
and the United States.
Whithin a few short years the benefit of sand play to childhood development became noticeable and was determined to be beneficial to a child's growth through social and symbolic play.
By the early 1900's quite a few U.S. cities had sponsored playgrounds with sand boxes as part of a growing trend to provide children with a safe haven to allow their imaginations to blossom and grow.
In the modern day world sandboxes have expanded to include our own backyards and play areas. These sand gardens now known as sandboxes have become an essential and effective means for facilitating children learning through play.
