Sand-World play is an inspirational and non-threatening way of helping individuals express and make sense of their inner and outer worlds, tell their story, work through confusing or distressing experiences, or simply communicate their thoughts and feelings more clearly. A sand-tray provides a three-dimensional environment in which to work. Miniatures and other symbolic objects can be used to help support the information being shared and stories being told.

This form of play is particularly suitable to help individuals explore the world through the senses, i.e., by using materials such as dough and clay, slime and paint. It can help people define the world by discovering where the body ends and the remainder of the world begins, and is a way of expanding and making sense of the world.
