My eldest wanted to play outside on the trampoline, unfortunately the weather had other ideas and we had a lot of rain.  I explained it was wet so she told me she would wear her wellington boots and a coat.  I thought this was a great idea but perhaps not such a good idea to go out on the trampoline.  I compromised and brought some play sand inside.

Its the first time we have played with sand in the house, and it is everywhere, even upstairs.  The girls had so much fun though.  I don't think my youngest has experienced sand play on this level and she enjoyed it

look sand

There was of course the tasting of the sand

My eldest loved that we buried her feet

The girls had a lovely afternoon playing together and exploring the different textures

The girls and I had so much fun this afternoon playing with the sand.  My eldest was upset when it was time to tidy it all away.

This day I love Sand
