So, this morning I showed you what fun my 3 1/2 year old had with construction vehicles and counting in our indoor sandbox. My 6-year-old daughter was up next. Here is the benefit of not cleaning up parts of my house, namely our craft room, for several months. It’s a wreck, but I looked down on the floor, next to our newly created indoor sandbox, and saw a pile of dollhouse figures and one of those little paper umbrellas that you get in a fancy drink at a restaurant. Toys played with who knows when and then abandoned. And I thought, Beach!
I grabbed a little box of sea shells, some more of those fancy paper umbrellas and a few other things and called to The Queen Bee. She was thrilled and spent hours setting up and playing with her beach.
A paper towel and a scissors made for some easy-to-make beach towels. She found a few other props, like a little shovel and bucket. We added some small, plastic sea animals, too.
Then she photographed the scene, to remember it by.
Wait ’til you see what my 8-year-old son comes up with when it’s his turn. I am so hoping the thrill of this indoor sandbox carries over into next winter.
Linking up with these fab Linky Par-tays.
