Packed full of inspiring activities which re-invigorate and extend traditional areas of early years provision, 50 Fantastic Things to do with a sand tray, one of a series of four books, is a must have for pre-schools and nurseries. Each activity features easy to follow step-by-step instructions with additional ideas on how to extend the activity inside and outdoors. The learning possibilities are clearly identified and practitioners can see at a glance what the children will get out of the activity.
Both authors are experienced primary and early years practitioners (and in Alistair's case 10 years as a headteacher too), who are now established early years training consultants working with local authorities across the UK. This unique combination of experience both within the classroom and in the training circuit has given them both access to loads of fantastic ideas. They both see this range as a way of sharing not only the ideas which they have developed themselves over the years but a chance to pass on some of the great ideas they have picked up from others too.
