We went to the beach at Breakheart Reservation again this week. Just a quick trip one morning, enjoying the sunshine and a picnic. The kids showing Granny the fish. The boys discovering a ‘mermaid’ bug (don’t you just love their imaginations?!). The wee girl playing in the sand.
For her, the most important thing was that I’d remembered the sand toys this time!
She was a girl on a mission. To make a
puddle pond soup…
First we must survey the lake.
Then we must fill a bucket and march purposefully back to our hole.
Before filling the hole with water, repeatedly. And, in many different ways.
Then, of course, we must play in the
puddle pond soup!
Lastly, we must wash our hands.
It was lovely to see the wee girl enjoying the sand. Last year, she hated it. Even this year, on our first trip of the season to Breakheart, she was still unsure. Now, she is embracing the sand!
It’s great to see her happily playing, enjoying getting messy and loving the sensory experience. Even if she did insist on feeding us all soup!
I’m linking up with the wonderful Country Kids at Coombe Mill, as always. Click on the badge to see what everyone else has been up to and be inspired to get outside!
