We went to the beach the other morning - it was finally not boiling hot, so
I figured a little sitting on the sand would be good for everyone. And because I
am a huge (huge) geek, I brought paper, scissors and glue with us so that we
could do a project. (I know, go ahead, roll your eyes.)
But you can stop laughing now because it actually turned into a cute project and the kids, especially the three-year-old who wouldn't take off her sandals and walk in the
sand for all the money in the world, loved it.
We drew with glue (regular white glue, not a glue stick) on a paper.
Then we dumped a ton of sand on top. I had actually told them to sprinkle sand
on top, but sprinkle, dump, to each his own.
Shake the paper off and woweee! Sand art! And sand art where it's okay to make a
huge mess cause it's already a huge sandy mess at the beach. It doesn't get
better than that.
Oh yeah, wait, it does get better. We brought Dunkin Donut munchkins with us. A little sand on a glazed donut never hurt anyone.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
