Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Looking for a way to bring the beach into your home this summer? Fun and Function has recently released their "At the Beach Weighted Sand Kit" so your child can have fun playing in the sand! You may be thinking, "Umm, that sounds super messy..." Well, this play kit contains 2 pounds of no-mess sand! According to its description, "It is dry, pliable and weighted...and clean up is a breeze because the sand won't stick to clothing or surfaces!"

This Sand Kit is an ideal tool for sensory integration play or therapy. Children will have fun packing it, manipulating it into cool shapes, squeezing it, and more! The kit also includes 11 colorful beach-themed pieces so they can decorate their creations and practice speech and color recognition. This product is perfect for sensory seekers and under responders.

To learn more about the Beach Weighted Sand Kit, check it out on FunAndFunction.Com.
