    Hello. Is anyone using an indoor sand table or outdoor sandbox? We have not since last March but thinking ahead to warm weather.
    Thank you.

    Yes, we are using an outdoor sandbox. It's large enough to have space for children to play without being in each other's faces. We have not had an issue with any illness spreading within the class this year, even without wearing masks outside (aka in the sandbox).

    We have not been able to use an inside sand or water table this year, but we have had the sandbox on the playground accessible. For sensory activities in the classroom, we have used individual trays and then dumped the materials and washed out the trays.
