Here is an alternative to the usual sandtray. A small dish with a cover and dried beans makes a way for clients to do sandtray at s desk in school or at home.
Pros: Small, portable, colorful, lightweight, easy to clean, easy to store
Cons: Could become messy with water, some sensitive children find it smelly, the colors soon mix together
Another way to fill this tray is with small rocks or beads to avoid smell.
