Loggerhead Sandcastle

Upon entering The Sandbox the first exhibit is the Loggerhead Sandcastle which surrounds the children in sand, sea and sky. With a magical wand they can move creatures around a magnetic “aquarium” or create their own aquatic scene with sea creatures that cling to an ocean window. In the center of the castle is a large table filled with magical sand ready for children to mold and manipulate.

Key educational components:

As children mold and manipulate the magical sand it encourages their cognitive/mathematical understanding, language skills, fine motor manipulation, and social and emotional development. While moving the sea creatures with their magnetic wands children are exploring the science of magnets and by creating inspirational underwater pictures they are developing their creativity.
