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?
Our little ones love spending time at the beach. We have a caravan on the coast so it's just perfect. They love writing their names and drawing fish!ReplyDelete
My son would write his name and write his crushes name. My daughter would attempt to draw some hearts (she's only 3) xReplyDelete
My daughter would draw a butterfly as she absolutely loves them, she's always drawing them xxxReplyDelete
I love your drawings. We did this when we went on holiday in Wales. xReplyDelete
Haven't done this in yearsReplyDelete
We love doing this, and we are so lucky to live ten minutes walk from a nice beach - my little one loves to play in the sand, no matter what the weather.ReplyDelete
Such a great way to spend the day, gorgeous pictures xReplyDelete
This is gorgeous! Mine love drawing in the sand too! #CountryKidsReplyDelete
Looks like great fun, my daughter would draw a cat most likelyReplyDelete
As my kids are much older, 8, 11 and 14.They would probably write something with a hashtag.ReplyDelete
this makes me long for a day at the beach. We are having such a wonderful run of weather and I've failed to make time for the beach. simple pleasures like drawing in the sand are so relaxing. Lily looks like she is having a lovely time and this will make a great way to learn to write in time.ReplyDelete
