Technology Tuesday-Goodnight Little Sand Man

Have you heard of Germany’s famous “Little Sand Man”? There is now a mobile application that provides an interactive journey for your child during their bedtime routine. This app follows Little Sand Man through three different scenes: the bear family, the sea, and the family farm! It is designed for children between the ages of 2-5 to provide an interactive bedtime routine. There is also “magic sand” that your child can control by holding their finger on the screen. When the magic sand comes down, it is time for bed! This story will help your child settle down for bed by saying goodnight to all of the different characters. At Spectrum Pediatrics, we often hear the question “How can I help my child fall asleep?” or “What makes a good bedtime routine?”. If you do not want to use the mobile application you could also adapt this idea to your own environment! It might be a fun idea to have your child walk around the room to say “Goodnight” to all of the different objects or toys!
