In Japan, Zen Buddhists rake sand in stone gardens as a meditative act. Ours is a tabletop version, yet its effect can be just as peaceful. After seeing a careful demonstration, children can rake a pattern in the fine sand and select a place for each stone. The simplicity of this experience is powerful yet calming. A wonderful addition to a quiet corner.
Set consists of a wood-framed Sand Garden (12" x 7 1/8;"), 2 wood/bamboo rakes, sand, rocks, and a booklet of meditations. Ages 4 and up; children under 5 may need supervision.
Please note: We suggest that you fill the tray half-full with sand. This will help keep the the sand in the tray. Reserve the rest to refill as needed.
