Early Literacy Challenge 13: Playing in the Sandbox
Our kids love playing, digging and building in the sandbox. We moved ours this spring so it is right outside our patio door. This is great because we can get the dishes done while watching our kids play. It is really fun to listen to them talk while we play in the sand. A is constantly showing us his sand castles and M is having a lot of fun filling up buckets. We can't wait for the weather to be even nicer so we can start spending more time in the sand box. Both my husband and I love playing in the sand too because it is so relaxing to just dig, pour and build without worrying about anything else. Sensory activities like this help our kids build knowledge about space, size and shape.
