Homemade Mini Sand Pit!

May 5, 2010

I’m really enjoying the slightly (it is England after all) warmer weather and the opportunity for the children to learn and explore outside. I lay toys and tubs of activities in the garden at the beginning of the day and encourage them to get out and play; they even asked to sit outside and write up their science work today – perfect!

The picture above is of my home-made sand pit; we bought a bag of sand to make a ‘worm home’ this morning so I decided to make further use of the excess sand and make our own mini sand-pit. I took a large shallow basket (it must have wire in it or something as the one I used is pretty heavy), lined it with oil cloth and threw in some sand – add a few children and there you have it! It’s small enough to store in the garage/play room at the end of the day and just big enough for little hands!

If you’ve missed the last few days here at ‘Home Grown Babies’ we’ve started a series on ‘Thoughts on Hospitality’, you can read the introduction here and part 1 here – please feel free to add your thoughts and comments.

Trust you’re enjoying the fullness of God in your little corner of the world!

Abundant blessings
