Lily has started to enjoy the beach and sand a lot more than she used to. She used to not even want to touch it with her fingers but now she will quite happy build sandcastles and dig and play with the sand with her fingers.
Last week we went on a mini holiday to Weymouth and we went to the beach each day. This time I took lily down to the wet sand to show her what we could do there and we decided to do some drawing in the sand. Lily generally learns by copying a lot of things that I do. So I started the activity off by drawing her name into the sand and then some hearts.
Lily soon followed by making her own marks in the sand using either her fingers or the spade.
I love drawing in the sand. It always feels great leaving your mark on the beach and knowing that later it will be washed away so you can go crazy and draw to your hearts content. Lily loves drawing at home and so this was something she really enjoyed doing.
Here are some photographs of our drawings.
What would your child draw in the sand?
